2015-03-16 12:48

Cape Town – Last year Cassper Nyovest had one of the most played songs with Doc Shebeleza, so it came to everyone's surprise that he wasn’t nominated for song of the year at this year’s SAMA Awards…

The nominees include Monark, Euphonik Bob’Ezy & Mpumi, K.O ft Kid X, AKA, Bucie ft. Heavy K, DJ Clock ft. Beatenberg, Black Motion ft. Xoli M, MiCasa and Uhuru ft. Professor, Oskido & DJ Bucks.

And Cassper is not taking this one lying down.. Here is what he had to say on Twitter:

So to conclude...

And some more shade on Instagram:

This is what the legend @arthurmafokate had to say. What do you think?

Before people make this out to be that I think I'm the only one who deserves to be acknowledged. I tweeted this the day the nominations came out which was 2 days ago. I still don't understand why Aka wasn't a nominated cause the quality of his video was brilliant. The reason I ask these questions is cause this is my first time at these awards. I really know nothing and I want to empower myself with information and the best way is to question things. God helps those who help themselves. You can't sit and expect results. All I want to know is why we were not nominated for song of the year... I want to understand and I am not alone... I'm sure a lot of people are confused... Just explain to us as to why we didn't make the cut... So that next year, we can improve...

Okay, so if you've followed all of that... Cassper was hurt, then he got over it, and now he feels blessed cos as he said "there are people with way more problems".

Yoh, but these rappers have feelings!

Anyway, we do think you deserved the nomination Cassper. #teamcassper
