Cassper Nyovest reached out to Makhadzi after she too got left out of the South African Music Award (SAMA) nominations.
Taking to social media, Cassper made a special post letting Makhadzi know that her worth as an artist does not rely on whether she got a SAMA nomination or not.
Cassper is proof that a SAMA nomination does not reflect your level of success.
“.@MakhadziSA don’t worry. They don’t mean anything any more. Keep your head up and keep making history. We love you.”
Fans took to the comment section to second what Cassper said.
Many believe SAMAs are nonsense and are controlled by other factors like connections, money and personal favourites, not by the artist’s actual success and talent.
“So now to be nominated you must be connected, it’s never about hard work any more.
I think if all artists can work together and boycott this nonsense. We can have justice [for] hard-working musicians of this country regardless of which province you are coming from.
“I’m not surprised. However this sure won’t set her back. We all know SAMAs are scams.”
