The 27th of February 2016 is a night to look forward to as South Africa’s artists will be honoured for their musical talents and hard work. Judging by the nominations, we honestly don’t know what to expect as the competition looks really tight!
Newcomer and Nomvula hitmaker Nathi is the most nominated artist with five nominations in total (including Song of the Year category). It is no doubt that Nomvula was the anthem of 2015, subsequently gaining the Eastern Cape born artist nationwide attention.
On the House music front, the likes of Mi Casa, DJ Shimza, Heavy K, Black Coffee and newcomer Junior Taurus are representing with a number of nominations. We are absolutely proud of Free State born producer Prince Kaybee who scooped four nominations, including his two hits ‘Better Days’ and ‘Wajella’ in the Song of the Year category. Black Coffee scored three nominations with his Pieces of Me hit single ‘We Dance Again’ also competing with the likes of Shumaya, Nomvula and KOTW Anthem in the Song of the Year Category.
Junior Taurus & Lady Zamar, whose laid-back soulful and deep sounds have been rocking our ears last year, also received a nomination in the Best Group category. Mamelodi, how about you stand up for this one?! We are absolutely proud of the duo.
