Last night the 2019 SA Hip Hop Awards ceremony was held at the Lyric Theatre in Johannesburg. It’s the 8th annual edition of the Awards.
YoungstaCPT picked up the Album of the Year and Video of the Year Award (for the Imraan Christian directed video “YVR”). Nadia Nakai picked up the Best Female Award, Ginger Trill won the Lyricist of the Year Award and Falko One received an honorary award.
The number of categories were reduced this year at the 2019 SA Hip Hop Awards. The Kings Of The Province, Best Graffiti Artist and the Best Dance Crew Awards were not given out this year. The awards were a bit more streamlined this year.
