Johannesburg- The gloves are off between Bucie and DJ Heavy-K. 


The Princess of House scooped her first award ever at this year's SAMAs, which took place over the weekend. 

Bucie walked away with the title of Female Artist of the Year. And, during her acceptance speech the songbird 'forgot' to acknowledge Heavy-K for his contribution as the producer on her hit song, Easy to Love.


Heavy-K took to Twitter shortly after the SAMAs to express how disappointed he was over not being recognised by Bucie for his input. 

"When I was watching the SAMAs I was heartbroken. I don't make music for money. I did not charge a production fee for studio time or any of that. I made Easy to Love as a favour. I work hard to make whatever song I do a hit and that song was just that," Heavy-K told Daily Sun.

The house DJ was so emotional about the debacle that he's made a song, Broken Heart, which he released on social media this week, to further express his feelings. 

This created a social media storm with people criticising Bucie calling her "ungrateful".


Even though the songbird's record label has apparently apologised to Heavy-K and have stated that it wasn't done intentionally, Bucie seems to feel no remorse.

In fact, the songbird has hit back at Heavy-K's criticism saying that she won Best Female of the Year, for all the work she's done as an artist over the year, and not just for one song. 

"It was an award for Bucie as an artist because I have been in the industry for so long. It was Female Artist of the Year, it wasn't Best Female Song or Best Female Album but Female Artist, it's the work that I have been doing, work that I have been putting in, in my craft like waking up everyday, going to studio, going to shows, shooting videos," she told Sowetan

Bucie added that she's now finally been awarded for all her hard work and she is confused by everything that's going on. 

So, Heavy-K is nursing a broken heart and Bucie is basking in her joy - what a debacle! 

What do you guys think? Should Bucie have thanked Heavy-K?
