SA Hip Hop awards nominees

12 November 2014
The SA Hip Hop awards nominations have been announced with the usual and expected suspects leading the pack of nominees. AKA leads with eleven nominations with Cassper following closely, what’s also caught a lot of attention is the exclusion of Cashtime Life from the awards.

K.O, Kid X, Maggz, Ma-E and DJ Vigi have all been excluded from the list of nominees and everyone has been asking how as they have had an epic year on the scene, with K.O and Kid X collaborating on “Caracara” arguably one of the biggest songs of the year.

After the nominee list was announced, the awards organisers sent out a tweet that Cashtime was excluded upon their own request.



Cashtime Life co-owner, Thabiso Khati, was quoted as saying the awards weren’t transparent and lacked credibility which is why they pulled out of their nominations.

The list of nominees is as follows.
