Ntsiki Mazwai ~ News24


Johannesburg- Musician and social activist, Ntsiki Mazwai has taken more swipes against the hip-hop industry, which she claims is "sexist."

When the nominees for the awards were revealed last month, Ntsiki took to social media where she lashed out at organisers of the awards for "not recognising" women in the industry.

Taking to her blog Ntsiki also penned an open letter entitled, Dear Brothers of SA Hip-Hop, where she accused men in hip-hop of being a "bunch of misogynists and strong woman haters."

And, it seems like Ntsiki is not going to let this issue slide under the carpet.

Taking things to a whole new level, Ntsiki posted a controversial cartoon of naked men engaging in sexual activity, which she captioned "The SA Hip Hop Awards."

Ntsiki also complimented female MC Lucid Lee on her rapping skills, and told her followers how Lucid is a better rapper than both AKA and Cassper.

Anatti & Aka ~ News24


Johannesburg - Aka and Anatii may no longer see eye to eye on their collaboration, but the track has become an instant hit at the SA Hip Hop Awards, scoring 3 nominations.

The controversial collaboration was a massive hit on the streets, but AKA would later say that he thought the music video for the track was "trash" (Read more about that here).

But it seems like the majority don't agree.

The song has not only scored a nomination for Song of the Year and Collaboration of the Year, but also made the cut for Video of the year.

The awards will also honour both AKA and Cassper with Milestone Awards, while the pair will slug it out for the title of Most Valuable.

Check out the full nominations list here.

Imagine if AKA and Anatii win! Who would up and accept the award?
