The Full 2015 South African Hip Hop Awards Nominees List

No Comments Uncategorized

It’s almost award season again which means a lot of things: victories, disappointments, complaints, publicity stunts and maybe the odd diss track, among other things.

On Friday the South Africa Hip hop Awards officially announced that the 4th annual ceremony for the awards will be taking place on Wednesday, 9 December at The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City, Johannesburg. In addition to that, the nomination was also revealed, and as usual there were some controversies involved.

The leading one this year was the regarding the Best Female category which infamously only named to artists; namely, Assessa and C’Ro. Considering the surge in female presence in local hip hop this year (Gigi LaMayne, Rouge, Nadia Nakai, Patty Monroe, Numuzi, PushPush, etc.), you can imagine why Ntsiki Mazwai and her disheartened Twitter mob got into a frenzy over the lack of recognition of ladies making an impact. Over a series of exchanges between Mazwai, Gigi and Nadia, it was later revealed that all the ladies nominated in this year’s award boycotted the category as a statement to the culture that they would like to compete and be viewed in the same light as the male rappers.

Other rappers with big nominations include AKA (Best Collaboration, Milestone award, Most Valuable, Song of the Year, Video of the Year) and Riky Rick (Most Valuable, Video of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Male, Song of the Year).

The theme this year is African By Nature. You can check out the full nomination list below
