    i have to stress how disapointed i am regarding the samas, are the judges deaf? or just plain stupid!! i am finding very difficult to understand that liquid deep deserve the album of the year award, i mean really looking at the nominees catagory im not being difficult neither am i fussy but, lets be reall we are the public and damn were dumb founded by the fact that the artist who really desrves that award is Zakes B. it came as no shock to see who won every other award as it is planned by these judges who claim to know music and what we ”believe” is the best and is desrving to win there are artist who dont work as hard as others in their craft enouhg to be even nominated, let alone win the damn award. it saddens me deeply that we are still even considering going to these events that claim to be honouring our ”hard working” artist but i must confess MTN has a lot of work to do as it continuously set itself high on bar of good services, i am however not so sure they uderstrand the meaning of celebrating a hardworker, if they do not deserve it.. get your facts as well as opinions straight.


    Who nominated Bhekumuzi (who died), I thought SAMAs were about new albums? I am shocked
