Its 2018 and its Hip Hop vs the SAMAS again, well Cassper Nyovest vs SAMAS.No doubt that ’Thuto’ was one of the top selling album last year in SA and currently the album is still performing well on iTunes.The South African Music Awards (Samas) have an history of not really respecting or giving credit to Hip Hop in SA. For some the SAMAS are Regarded as the biggest music ceremony in South Africa for us personally we don’t see it ,seeing that the production for the MTV OR Channel O Awards are always better than the SAMAS. This year Cassper Nyovest has decided to not Submit ‘Thuto’ his works for nominations to the South African Music Awards (Samas).This decision of course upset a lot of his fans. Cassper Felt that he did not need the drama the awards brought and that the award will not have an impact on what he has already achieved in his life . See tweets below. Cassper has been on war with the SAMA since 2015 after the awards failed to recognize his superhit single Doc Shebeleza.
Nope. I didn’t submit Thuto for the Samas. It’s been a long debate at the office and as much as I love making the fans Happy I’m just over the Samas. I wish I could just perform and not take part in the award ceremony. I just love putting on world class performances you know. https://t.co/nxXZcB0MsT

The battles in your life aren’t as bad as they seem. Honestly, I’ve learnt so much from the hate,the industry turning against me,being snubbed at the awards when I deserved to win ect than I learned from actually winning & being praised by people. Don’t capitulate! PUSH THROUGH!
