BREAKING NEWS: Nasty C's two videos automatically disqualified from SAMA 23

The RiSA/SAMA office confirmed that it received a number of enquiries about the qualification of Nasty C’s music videos i.e. Good Girls and Don’t Do It in the category Best Music Video as announced at the SAMA 23 Nominees event on 20 April 2017.

RiSA's investigations have revealed that the videos were submitted for entry on 24 January 2017. The SAMA organiser have further determined that the videos were not flighted before the closing date of the entries of 31 January 2017 as required by the SAMA rules.

"We have always trusted that all music videos submitted for this category to us have already been flighted by broadcasters during the specified entry period of the SAMAs entries . 

"This case has proven us wrong and we accept full responsibility for our oversight to further verify whether the music videos submitted for this category were in fact flighted during the relevant SAMAs entry period," reads a statement released by RiSA on Tuesday evening.

In light of this, the two music videos are automatically disqualified because they do not meet the criteria for Best Music Video Category. Replacement nominees will be announced soon.

Nhlanhla Sibisi, CEO of RiSA commented: ‘The SAMA prides itself with a rich history of accountability and credibility. Our legitimacy is in our checks and balances including public involvement  and how swiftly we act.'

Nasty C’s tally of nominations goes down to five, making fellow rapper Kwesta the most nominated artist of SAMA 23 with his six nods.

Let's wait and hear what will Nasty C and his management will say about this? Seems like they missed the rules or they were taking chances? So, if people didn't question this what was gonna happen?
