- AKA is the latest South African musician to criticise this year's SAMAs
- Supa Mega took to Twitter to slam the SAMAs for nominating too many music videos in the Video Of The Year category
- The Fela In Versace hitmaker's video for Jika featuring Yanga Chief is also nominated in the same category which is voted for by the public
AKA has shaded the South African Music Awards' (SAMAs) Video Of The Year category. The Fela In Versace hitmaker feels too many music videos were nominated in the category.
Briefly.co.za has gathered that 20 Mzansi music videos are competing against each other in the category in order to win the prestigious award voted for by the public.
Supa Mega's video for Jika featuring Yanga Chief has also been nominated in the category. The rapper, who is known for not mincing his words, wrote on Twitter:
"WAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!! This Video of the year category is K*K full of nominees. Yeses."
Some of AKA's followers also shared his sentiments.
"It's basically everyone who's ever released a music video tbh, they confusing us."
"Same thing I thought when I saw it!"
"My thoughts exactly."
Some of the star's fans said he mustn't worry as they have voted for him to take the award home.
"Don't worry you will crank this one."
"Take it easy bro, God will make a way. In Mega we trust."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Cassper Nyovest blasted the SAMAs after his artist Nadia Nakai was not nominated in the Best Hip Hop Album category. The Amademoni hitmaker has advised artists who were snubbed by the SAMAs to rather focus on winning new fans than taking home new awards.
"My advice to everyone who didn't get nominated and feels cheated: a strong fan base is way more valuable than a full cabinet. They love you when you are new and then they find a replacement when you dominate too much."
Mzansi stars including Matorokisi hitmaker Makhadzi, Nadia and R&B sensation Ayanda Jiya have all taken to social media to complain about not being nominated for this year's ceremony.
Mufasa emphasised that musicians don't need recognition from the SAMAs in order to succeed in the industry.
