Beatenberg, Cassper and AKA are the boys to beat at the Metro Fm Awards
The Annual Metro FM Awards nomination list was announced last night and Beatenberg were the night's big surprise.
The band, who dominated much of 2014 with their infectious hits Pluto and Rafael, scooped 5 nominations for Group of the Year, Collaboration of the Year (With DJ Clock), Best African Pop Album, Best Hit Single (Rafael) and the prestigious song of the Year for their hit Rafael .
The band will compete in the Song of the Year category with the likes of Euphonik, AKA, The Soil, DJ Fisherman, Cassper Nyovest and Kelly Khumalo.
It was also a good night for Cassper (Song of the Year, Best Male, Best Music Video, Best Hip Hop, Best Remix and Best Hit Single) and his rival turned bestie AKA (Song of the Year, Best Male, Best Music Video, Best Hip Hop, Best Remix and Best collaboration) who both got nominated in 6 categories.
Sadly, Dj Cleo's Ugogo got no nods- oh well there's always next year!
Watch out for the full list of nominees later.
