South African rapper, Nasty C had his most succesful weekend to date after walking away with four awards at the Metro FM Music Awards which took place this past weekend. While some of those awards were certainly deserved (For instance, “Best Newcomer”) there has been some contention over the prize he received for “Song of the Year”.

While there’s no doubting that Nasty’s song, “Hell Naw” was one of the biggest of the year, was it really as big as the likes of “Wololo” and “N’Gud”?
Best New Artists = Nasty C
Best HH album = A-Reece
Best Male artist = Kwesta
Song of the year = Wololo/Ngud
This is how it shudve been.

Not everybody is convinced and there are not-so-subtle rumours that Mabala Noise “bought” the awards that their artists ended up winning.
