Limpopo based singer Makhadzi fans are livid on social media after their favourite artist got snubbed again by the South African Music Awards (SAMA’s).
Many are still trying to come to terms with why the ‘Murahu’ crooner continuing failure to bag a nomination at the awards despite her tremendous start to the year with her album Kokovha.
The 27th South African Music Awards nomination list was released last night and fans could not believe how Makhadzi got snubbed, once again.
DJ Sabby, Rorisang Thandekiso and Sphesihle Vazi announced the nominees on SABC 1 and even though many where content with majority of the nomination, still there a lot more people who felt Makhadzi was hard done by failing to bag a nomination.
Many felt she at least deserved to bag Album of The Year nomination, but that category was dominated by male artists only. These are Bongo Riot, Black Motion, Kabza De Small, Maphorisa and Junior Taurus.
Tweeps also got enraged about the fact that none of the Limpopo-based artists taking the world by storm got recognized. These include King Monada and Master KG, who also got snubbed last year even when they gave mzansi bangers such as Idibala and Jerusalema.
Makhadzi took to her Twitter account to express her disappointment by saying she handed her documents over in time, but she reckons she probably did not meet their requirements.
“I did submited samas nomination forms but unfortunately maybe I didn’t meet their requirements,” she cried.
Last year, Makhadzi was also heartbroken after she did not get recognised at the 26th SAMAs. “Congratulations to all SAMAs nominees..so said for not being recognized after what matorokisi did to AFRICANS last year..to all my fans I submitted everything is just that ndinga ndoneta tshinyama.. Your love and support matter.”
Hip-hop sensation Cassper Nyovest told her to forget about them, “Sorry Queen!!! Keep grinding!!! Forget awards!!! The people’s love is the greatest award an artist can have. When da people love you genuinely, you will have a long successful career whether you win awards or not. Some people clean up at the awards & fade away the very next year.”
