oh oh oh oh the SAMA ceremony was a complete disaster...the cameras were operated by ameteurs oooh not to mention the lighting eish...at first I thought it was my TV but it turned out not to be....the sound was so lame...eish I was so disgusted by the stage....the winners had to walk miles to accept their awards and people were moving up and down as if it was some deep rural beauty pageants.......the company which produced that show must be completely ashamed of themselves

Bonang's outfits?????, a complete disaster, Ok the second one was not so bad but she looked like a ghost on the very first one, WTF!!!!!
From the stage, the sound, the lights,performances, presentation.....real disaster!! Not even one joke to put a smile on my face from Phat Joe and that skinny Bonang???? 

Ntsiki and the sister, going to take the award for Thandiswa, they walked for almost 5mins before they can get there, I even forgot they were coming to the stage!!!!

Yoh ay shame, these people should be ashamed of themselves!!!!

At the risk of being called a hater and i dont care enough for this young lady to hate her..
Her work doesnt target me so i realy dont get the hype about her. And i thought she wasnt a perfect match for Joe...someone who is comedic could have done a good job. But hey...no point crying over spilled spoiled milk.

i don't understand what the hype is all about with regard to Proffessor's music, the only song worth listening on his album is the one with Speedy, the other songs r just arranged/organised noise

We dont have the same taste in everything nhe BUT @maddie the whole Proferssor album imnandi yonke to me juss like the Liquideep album..I enjoy every song differently than the other..

This is one of those albums are worth buying, not downloaded or piracy... It's value for money unlike some musicians that only got 2 good quality songs in a 12 track ulbum..those are worthy to be bought on the streets (((((hides))))).

There were too many performances and some were shorter than others ( e.g Professor's).
Cleo is always winning most downloaded shame, whether it is him or featured, the public must love him.  I wonder why rant so much about not being nominated though.
