Nasty C’s Disqualification: Dr Malinga And Kwesta Respond To The SAMAs Mishap


While Kwesta thinks the SAMAs need to apologise to the young rapper following the mix-up, Dr Malinga’s day was made after news about Nasty C’s disqualification emerged.

The veteran musician grabbed the opportunity to fire fresh shots at the Hell Naw hitmaker after two of his videos were disqualified from the 2017 South African Music Awards (SAMAs).

Malinga’s string of tweets shows that his hatchet with rapper Nasty C is far from being buried.

The feud between the two musicians started shortly after the Metro FM Awards in February. At the time, Malinga questioned the young rapper’s Song of the Year award which he said was undeserving.

Subsequently, the battle went out of control and resulted in weeks of dissing on each other on Twitter.

So, it’s not surprising that the kickmaster would rejoice over the mishap on Nasty’s SAMAs nods. As a result, he said that Nasty was a “late comer” and even suggested that it could be a case of ‘karma’ on display.

Nasty C’s two videos, Good Girls and Don’t Do It, were investigated after it was pointed out by fans that it had not aired on national television before January 31 as required by the SAMAs rules.

“Our investigations revealed that the videos were submitted for entry on 24 January 2017. We have further determined that the videos were not aired before the closing date of the entries of 31 January 2017 as required by the rules,” Samas revealed in a press statement.

The videos were listed for the best video of the year category, but were later removed from the list. This means that fellow rapper Kwesta is now the artist with the highest nods.

Notwithstanding, Kwesta is not happy with Nasty C’s disqualification even though it favoured him. Instead, the rapper thinks the organisers of the awards need to apologise to the industry and to Nasty C instead of hiding behind press statements.
