DJ Maphorisa recently took a jab at the SAMAs in a congratulations tweet for Mlindo The Vocalist. The star said it was a good thing that the SAMAs couldn't "cheat" his team out of the Best Selling Artist Award.

He wrote, "You couldn't cheat us on this one. Big shout-out to the fans and thanks to everyone who was involved in this amazing project. Congrats (to) my boy, Mlindo The Vocalist. Let's give them another one. I am humbled always (and) give thanks to the most high."

By "cheat", Phori is probably referring to the award for Best Kwaito Album. The SAMA went to DJ Tira instead of the hugely popular Scorpion Kings Maphorisa and Kabza De Small duo.

Fans were extremely vocal about being unhappy that Scorpion Kings lost out. The official SAMAs Twitter account said all opinions are accepted.

AKA is another star who recently shaded the SAMAs. Mega said he couldn't understand why there were 20 videos competing in the Video Of The Year category.

Social media blew up as fans demanded the music video be put back where it was found.
