Makhadzi might be crushed over her South African Music Award Snub, but sis is hopeful that she will get nominated or even win one day. She told Sowetan Live that even though she did not get recognised this year again at the 27th edition, she will not lose hope as she is not angry, she is just disappointed.


The Murahu hitmaker has been on everybody’s lips for the past few years because of her energetic performances and her catchy tunes. It is only fair that she gets recognised by the top award platforms in the country right?

Speaking to the paper, Makhadzi says she is not angry she is just very disappointed that the award platform failed to recognise her. She said after working so hard and putting in the energy to make her music as good as it is, she is confused at what exactly are the SAMA’s looking for.

“I will continue trying my luck until someone realises my hard work. Who knows, things might change. I’m not angry but just disappointed. I don’t know what qualities they look for during the judging process. I am hurt that after working so hard I did not make it to the nomination list. I wish they could tell me what really earns you more points because I am lost. The public loves and supports my music,” she told the publication.

The paper then asked the SAMA’s to comment on the issue which has angered many South Africans. They said she did not get the required number of points to earn her a nomination.


A spokesperson of the SAMAs said, “Makhadzi was not snubbed. According to our esteemed panel of judges, she did not accumulate enough scores to earn her a nomination. The judges’ scores determine who make it through to the final nomination list. The scores are based on a specific criterion.”

As defeated as she may be, many ZAlebs tried to comfort her telling her to forget about the SAMA’s because she already has the support she needs to continue doing better things in the industry.

Cassper advised her to forget about the SAMA’s. His stance has not changed then and it will not change now. “Sorry Queen!!! Keep grinding!!! Forget awards!!! The people’s love is the greatest award an artist can have. When da people love you genuinely, you will have a long successful career whether you win awards or not. Some people clean up at the awards & fade away the very next year,” he said last year.

This year he said, “Don’t worry. They don’t mean anything anymore. Keep your head up and keep making history. We love you.”
