MTN SAMA Awards – Top Categories

The MTN SAMA’s have done it again, as always once they announce the nominees controversy always follows. This time some of the independent record companies complained that some of the nomination were from the previous year and some songs which were suppossed to be nominated were not. Below is a list of the categories that everyone looks out for and our guesses which might change the awards…
