SAMA 23 2017 Hosts

SAMA 23 is Here

The South African Music Awards are here upon us yet again. The larger than life media personality Somizi Mhlongo will be back once more to perform hosting duties, he will be joined by the queen of South African comedy, award winning comedian Tumi Morake as his co-host.

The awards will be taking place back at Sun City Superbowl on Saturday 27 May 2017. The hosts themselves make you not to want to miss the awards even without the music, but lucky for us that wont be happening, the night promises to be a great compilation of entertainment, laughter and a few heartbreaks when some of your favourite artists don’t take home awards.

The whole music industry will be out, hoping to solidify their hard work over the past year with a SAMA award. The night seems like it’s going to be slug-fest between Kwesta and Nasty C, they are the hottest artist right now in the hip-hop industry and they are the most nominated artists of the night.
Kwesta leads the pack with 5 nominations. Kwesta is nominated in the following categories: Best Male, Album Of The Year (DaKAR II), Best Rap Album (DaKAR II), Best Collaboration (Mayibabo ft DJ Bucks, DJ Maphorisa & Okmalumkoolkat, from DaKAR II) and Best Collaboration (Ngud’ ft Cassper Nyovest, from DaKAR II). His song Ngud’ also recently reached a milestone by reaching over 4 million views on Youtube.


Nasty C follows closely behind with 4 nominations, all from his debut album Bad Hair Extensions. It has earned him nods for Best Newcomer of the Year, Best Male Artist of the Year, Best Album of the Year and Best Rap Album. He would have had 6 nods as his videos ‘Don’t Do It’ and ‘Good Girls’ were in the running for Best Music Video of the Year, however they were removed as they were released after the entry date.

Either way you look at it, the SAMA’s promise to be a night to be remembered, you can catch all the action live on SABC1 at 8pm.
