However, not everyone is happy with their nods. After the announcements, Empini hitmaker Kelly took to Twitter to ask the awards show to remove her name. The star has been nominated in the 'Best Afro Pop Album' category alongside Vusi Nova, Simmy, Azania and Manu Worldstar. 

“Dear Samas, I humbly ask that you remove my work out of what ever category you might have nominated me for. As much as I respect what you do, I also ask that you respect my hard work and effort,” wrote Kelly.

Though Kelly didn't give a clear reason why she wanted to repeal the nomination, the star responded to a fan saying the Samas insulted her hard work.

“How dare they insult my hard work like that!” said Kelly.
