- Veteran Durban Kwaito musician Professor has apologised for offending Maskandi fans
- Professor reacted negatively to Ukhozi FM's Song of the Year (SOTY) results
- Professor expressed that Big Zulu's song titled Imali Eningi should have been the Song of the Year instead of Ijele by Maskandi artist Khuzani
Musician Professor has apologised after he reportedly offended Maskandi fans with his opinion on Ukhozi FM's Song of the Year winner.
The Durban Kwaito singer is among many Mzansi people who feel that Big Zulu's Imali Eningi deserved to take the number one spot with the popular national radio station. He allegedly slammed the station's presenters Tshatha Ngobe and Sipho 'DJ Sgqemeza' Mbatha and Maskandi listeners for being jealous of Imali Eningi's success.
The musician's views came after Maskandi artist Khuzani's song titled Ijele took the Song of the Year with a whopping 957 950 votes.
According to ZAlebs, the Ungang' Didisi hitmaker said in a clip:
"You are all jealous, Big Zulu did not win Song of the Year? A song that is played nationwide and around the world did not win. You guys are all jealous."
The publication reports that the star has apologised to everyone he offended. He said he had no idea where his views came from.
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that Big Zulu has suggested that he is not happy with the Song of the Year results on Ukhozi FM. The rapper had one of the most popular songs in the festive season.
His track titled Imali Eningi was one of the songs on the popular radio station's Top 10 tracks that were competing for the Song of the Year spot which was voted for by the public.
Unfortunately Nkabi's track wasn't the winner. Khuzani's Maskandi song titled Ijele took the number one spot. It received 957 950 votes. Big Zulu took to Twitter on 2 December to react to a post by a KZN politician who was complaining that Imali Eningi didn't win.
Vusi Khoza shared that Imali Eningi deserved to be the Song of the Year on Ukhozi FM after KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala congratulated Khuzani.
The artist reacted to Khoza's post with a pensive face emoji which conveys a variety of sad emotions, including feeling disappointed. Other tweeps also shared their thoughts on Big Zulu's reaction to the politician's post about Ukhozi FM's Song of the Year.
One fan @xola_ntshayza commented:
"Nkabi... you shouldn't be entertaining such statements... Multiple voting has always been allowed (doesn’t mean it's right). But you knew the terms before competing. Maskadi lovers mobilize their fans and they vote thousands times per person."
