The 16th Metro FM Awards held last Saturday at the Durban ICC have raised a considerable measure of issues concerning the believability of the Metros.
The Metro have been drifting via web-based networking media for all the wrong reasons. This was after rapper Riky Rick impacted TV and radio stations while giving his acknowledgment discourse. Evidently, the artist wasn’t cheerful that he got a honor while there are battling craftsmen out there who never at any point got airplay.
Following his acceptance speech at the Metros which was cut short, Riky took to Twitter to pour out his heart;
“If niggaz can pay for these f***ing awards, then my nigga, I don’t want them,” he later tweeted.
STOP PLAYING WITH THE PEOPLE… WE NOT STUPID…
Moreover, not just Riky, other artists were also dissatisfied with the results of the the 16th Metro FM Awards.
Here are some of the reactions we got from other artists on the 16th Metro FM Awards;
DJ Black Coffee weighed in on the matter raised by Riky Rick. He also took to social media to share his disappointment with the way the awards are being handled. Wondering why his remix did not make the cut even though it was played worldwide, the DJ suggested that Metro FM should limit itself to being a radio station only.
Just watched the #MMA16….maybe it’s time @METROFMSA do what they do best and remain a Radio Station?
Most people including Ntando Duma thought Kwesta’s Ngud would take the award for Song of the Year. Instead, the award went to Nasty c for Hell Naw. Ngud was clearly the most-celebrated songs in 2016.
Thus, Kwesta also took to social media to share his thoughts, saying “the bullsh*t must be called”.
Never been a bitter fella. We keep working, we just about music. But in the end the bullshit must be called. Just got 4 missed calls from me
For rapper L-Tido, the music industry was “corrupt” because Babes Wodumo and Kwesta did not win any awards.
Babes wodumo and Kwesta killed through out 2016 it’s really sad they didn’t win nothing . This music industry is so corrupt
Zakes Bantwini also felt that Kwesta and Babes Wodumo should have taken at least one award home. In his tweet, he said they had won the hearts of South Africans, which was the biggest award.
Awards are nothing bt pure acknowledgement they don’t determine ur talent, Congrats to all the winners #MMA16
A-Reece also showed support for Riky Rick’s speech;
Meanwhile, rapper JR, who has never won an SA award said they stopped mattering to him years ago.
Honestly guys, awards stopped mattering to me in 2011
Again, Khuli Chana; who was expected to win Best Music Video, said the power of the people was stronger than the people in power.
Thank you 2 the fans 4 SHITTIN on the industry 4 what happened at the MMA’s,ill keep raising the BAR until u Put Flowers on me! #OneSource
