Metro Fm Awards 2015 Nomination List Announced

By Molebogeng Mangoale

The countdown to the Metro Fm Awards has already begun and we cannot wait to see who the winners will be. The nominee list was announced on 22 January and we have to say, the competition looks really tough.


We are proud of House music duo Black Motion who got a nomination for ‘Best Dance Album’ among the likes of Nastee Nev, DJ QT, Donald and DJ Fisherman and the ‘Best Duo/Group Album’. The princess of house music Bucie also got a nomination for ‘Best Female Album’.

Beatenberg also got a nomination for their current hit single ‘Rafael’. The pop band rose to fame with the song ‘Pluto/Remember You’ on which they were featured by DJ Clock. The song was among the best house songs for 2014. Beatenberg also got nominated for ‘Best African Pop Album’ while DJ Clock received a nomination for ‘Best Collaboration’ with them.

Congratulations to Chymamusique  as well for being nominated for best new artist among Dr Malinga, DJ Dimplez and others. Chymamusique released his debut album ‘Gift of Sound’ in 2014 on which he features the likes of Soulstar and Kaylow. We are rooting for the Limpopo-born DJ all the way!

It looks like the ‘Song of the Year’ category will be a highly contested one as the nominated songs vary mostly between Hip Hop and House music. It is absolutely no doubt that SA Hip Hop has been at its best last year, it will be interesting to see who will take this one.
