K.O took to Twitter to congratulate Yanga Chief on winning the Hip-Hop Album Of The Year award, leading to many of his fans claiming he should have won.
K.O was one of the industry heavyweights that took to Twitter to congratulate Yanga Chief on winning the Hip-Hop Album Of The Year award at The South African Awards (SAMAs) on Wednesday, 5 August 2020. His congratulatory message showcased his good sportsmanship, as he was also nominated for the same award.
While K.O might have been mature about his loss to Yanga Chief, his fans flooded the post with messages claiming that he was cheated of the award. The comments were from fans who compared the two artists’ albums and most popular singles.
Earlier in the day, K.O had committed to releasing his long-awaited single, Mission Statement 3, if he walked away with the coveted award.
