Johannesburg -Watch out Metro FM Awards, Nathi is coming to dominate!

Bonang's favourite artist, Nathi, walked away from Thursday night's Metro FM Awards nominees party with a huge smile on his face, after bagging five nominations.

Nathi scored nods in the Best African Pop, Best RnB, Best Male album, Best New Artist and prestigious Song of the Year award categories.

But he'll have to slug it out with hit duo, Kings of the Weekend, who also scored 5 nominations, including a Song of the Year nod for their hit, The Anthem.

Last year rapper Cassper Nyovest was a big winner, walking away with five awards. This year he will only be competing in two categories.
