SA rapper Cassper Nyovest took to Twitter to express his displeasure over the South African Music Awards 26(SAMAs26) nomination list which was revealed on Wednesday.
Nyovest gave his two cents worth on who he felt should have made the nomination list for “Best Hip Hop Album”.
In the tweet he said: “Nadia Nakai shoulda been nominated for Best Hip Hop album at the Samas. I don’t know if it’s cause she a female or what but she dropped a great body of work and looking at the albums that made it, she atleast deserved a nomination. My 2 cents,” it read.
This year’s nominations for Best Hip Hop Album went to YoungstaCPT for “3T”, Yanga Chief for “Becoming a Pop Star”, DJ Sliqe for “Injayam Vol.2”, KO for “PTYunLTD” and Big Zulu for “Ungqongqoshe Wongqongqoshe”.
The “Naaa Meaan” rapper did not receive any nomination this year even though Nyovest thinks she “dropped a great body of work”. Nyovest was probably referring to Nakai’s album “Naked Nadia” and her recent single “All You Do Is Talk”.
Even though Nakai is signed to Nyovest’s record label, “Family Tree Records”, not all of his fans and followers agreed with him taking Bragga’s side.
