So its been reported that the RiSA/SAMA office received a number of inquiries about the qualification of Nasty C’s music videos (Good Girls and Don’t Do It) in the category Best Music Video as announced at the SAMA 23 Nominees event on 20 April 2017.
Now investigations have revealed that the videos were submitted for entry on 24 January 2017 which further determined that the videos were not flighted before the closing date of the entries of 31 January 2017 as required by the SAMA rules.
Now these two music videos were automatically disqualified because they do not meet the criteria for Best Music Video Category. Replacement nominees will be announced soon.
“The SAMA prides itself with a rich history of accountability and credibility. Our legitimacy is in our checks and balances including public involvement and how swiftly we act” – Nhlanhla Sibisi, CEO of RiSA
This now means that Nasty C’s tally of nominations goes down to five, making fellow rapper Kwesta the most nominated artist of SAMA 23 with his six nods.
