Sands no be South Africa person and the award na for South Africans and Mobi Dixon matter na because the song wey him remix na international song, not local.
SAMAs don replace the artists and their songs with Sketchy Bongo and Kaien Cruz ‘Love Me in The Dark’ for ‘Record of the year’ and ‘Mwanagu’ by Jackie Queens and VeneiGrette remix by Enoo Napa.
#SAMA24 announcement: ‘Tigi’ by Sands and ‘Lake by the Ocean’ by Mobi Dixon have been struck off the SAMA24 nominees list. Sands is a citizen of eSwatini and Mobi Dixon’s ‘Lake by the Ocean’ is a remix of an international song and this defies the rules of the SAMAs. pic.twitter.com/CzSb7DT7jr
