Rapper Emtee continues to be a firm favourite . . . when it comes to music awards. The rapper, together with Riky Rick and Nathi Mankayi are leading the SAMA nominations pack, after the nominations were announced yesterday in Soweto.
The guys all have 4 nominations . . . they will all be against each other for the Best Male Award. Emtee will also compete against Riky Rick for Best Rap album and Best Newcomer, as well as other nominees.
DJ Black Coffee, Tresor and Zonke Dikana got 3 nods, and Fifi Cooper and Zahara got two nominations each.
Cassper Nyovest said he didn’t submit any tracks for the SAMAs this year, but he did manage to score a nomination for Slyza Tsotsi. His rapper rival AKA also scored a nomination for All Eyes on ME and Baddest.
The competition is tough this year, as some of the best and biggest songs in Mzansi now are in the spotlight . . . so we know already that the awards will be super lit.
And now, we are waiting just for the ‘Song of the Year’ nominations. This will be announced on Live Amp on SABC 1.
