In other Mzansi music news, Briefly.co.za previously reported that SAMA27 introduced separate award categories for Amapiano, Kwaito and Gqom. The SA Music Awards has finally separated the three biggest music genres in Mzansi. The awards academy now has separate categories for Best Kwaito, Amapiano and Gqom Album.
Best Amapiano Album honours excellence by musicians in the Amapiano genre while the best Gqom Album honours excellence by musicians in the Gqom genre and the best Kwaito Album category has been reinstated after it was bundled together with Amapiano and Gqom genre as sub genres since 2017.
According to RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi, the move is a reflection of the changing local music landscape as seen in the rise in popularity of these three genres.
