DJ Maphorisa indirectly addressed his and Kabza De Small’s loss to DJ Tira in the Best Kwaito Album category at The SAMAs, suggesting that they were cheated.
DJ Maphorisa took to Twitter to reveal how he feels about having not won the Best Kwaito Album award at The South African Music Awards (SAMAs) on Thursday, 6 August 2020. The nod was given to DJ Tira for Ikhenani on Wednesday, 5 August 2020, during the televised special. DJ Maphorisa had initially stayed away from social media, however, following his BlaqBoy Music artist, Mlindo The Vocalist, winning the Best Selling Artist award, he returned to social media.
Before giving kudos to Mlindo The Vocalist and his record company, DJ Maphorisa suggested that he and Kabza De Small, collectively known as Scorpion Kings, were “cheated” out of the award. The amapiano duo was nominated for their album, The Return Of The Scorpion Kings. He stated, “[You] couldn’t cheat us on this one.”
