The nominees for the 20th South African Music Awards were announced recently. The nominees range from African pop veterans Mafikizolo to indie rockers Gangs of Ballet. We’ve decided to run a few features on some of the nominees from 24 March – 23 April. We’re struggling to narrow down the list of worthy nominees. Enter you, our loyal, helpful readers. Below is a list of 16 artists which we’ve narrowed down. If you fancy any of these, or simply want to know more about the artist(s), vote for them. If your favourite nominee is not featured in the poll, feel welcome to add them.
You have until Saturday, 22 March to vote before our poll closes. The most popular artists will be profiled, starting 24 March. The 20th annual SAMAs takes place on 28 April at Sun City, with a live broadcast on SABC 1. The full list of nominees is available here.
