And the winner is…

2007-04-16 16:27
The only disappointment of the night was rowdy fans who were vocal when their favourite artist was not chosen, and DJ Sbu’s bitter comment when he accepted the Song Of The Year award for “Remember When It Rained”, after he lost out in other categories. “In case you didn’t know, this is the only category nominated by the people,” Sbu whipped.

The highlight of the evening was a Vusi Mahlasela and Cassette collaboration. The jazz musician and the rockers brought the crowd to its feet.

All in all the 2007 SAMAs is evidence that South African music is on the right track. See how our predictions compared. And the winners are…
