Ayanda Jiya has taken a jab at the SAMAs saying that her album AYANDASTAND did not get nominated for Best R&B Album at the SAMA26, guessing that it’s because she is not with a prominent record label!outh African singer and songwriter
“Didn’t get nominated for best Rnb album and I had 3 singles from that album that were dominating the charts on radio and tv. my current single ft Stogie T is one of the most played music videos on tv this year… I guess it’s coz I’m not with a prominent label. My 2cents” wrote Ayanda Jiya.
Ayanda Jiya was replying to Cassper Nyovest when he said his artist Nadia Nakai should have been nominated for Best Hip-Hop album at the SAMA26.
“Nadia Nakai shoulda been nominated for Best Hip Hop album at the Samas. I don’t know if it’s cause she a female or what but she dropped a great body of work and looking at the albums that made it, she at least deserved a nomination. My 2 cents,” said Cassper Nyovest.
Cassper Nyovest responded to Ayanda Jiya by saying that he was sorry and he knows how much this can hurt, alluding to the fact that his first studio album Tsholofelo was also snubbed at the SAMAs and he was given The Best Newcomer.
“Eish sorry Ayanda, I know how much this can hurt. My first album was snubbed at the Samas & I was given the best newcomer. I wasn’t even nominated for the song of the year with Doc Shebeleza. I stayed away from the Samas and become the biggest rapper they have ever seen without the Samas,” said Cassper Nyovest.
Cassper Nyovest went further to explain to Ayanda Jiya that the SAMAs don’t mean sh!t no more.
“What I’m trying 2 show is the Samas don’t mean shit anymore. I know as an artist we love to be acknowledged but the Samas don’t hold the weight they used to hold. I was also snubbed cause I didn’t sign 2 a major label & majors run the awards. Rather fans than awards,” explained Cassper Nyovest.
