DJ Zinhle has hit back at those who asked how she was nominated for a South African Music Award (SAMAs) this year but fellow musician, Master KG was not.
This comes after a Twitter user tagged the award-winning DJ in a tweet in which she asked how it was possible for Zinhle’s “Umlilo” to be nominated for record of the year while “Jerusalema” by Master KG was not.
The user even went on to say that if Zinhle won the award, she would not deserve it.
“How is @DJZinhle nominated for ROTY and master KG isn’t. Even she knows if she wins this, it’s an award she doesn’t deserve. It was Jerusalem everywhere in December, even now. This song is big all over Africa. Niwathenga ngempela. This is master kgs award! Period! #SAMA26”, tweeted the user.
Zinhle clapped back saying that she did not care if she was nominated or not.
“Learn to fight for your faves without accusing other people of things you know nothing about. I actually don’t care if I’m nominated or not. Ngiyithenge kuphi I-Award sisi? If there was a way I’d give my nomination to someone else. These awards don’t define my life. Uyaphapha”, responded Zinhle.
“Umlilo” by DJ Zinhle which features Mvzzle and Rethabile is also nominated for music video of the year.
