    All these brands use it as a platform to market their products. So no, it's not taxpayers moneys...

    still will not be convinced to listen to todays noise, prefer the old fashioned proper songs from the 70's to late 80's. That is when music was still called music, and it was worth spending a dollar on a tape or record, even worth listening to a radio. lately???

    Sponsor paid for but tragic the recent bad weather there have been so many people displaced and have lost everything. 2.5mil would go a long way to help families in need.

    What a well spent 2.5 million ! It's not as if the poverty stricken could have made use of that amount of money , or one of the many rhino anti - poaching foundations etc..... Well done SAMA for using your funds so wisely , I guess the organizers were not allowed to collect all sponsorship proceedings and donate them to a worthy cause. I see adverts on TV and in magazines displaying the plight of the poor or "that one child" who has a rare disease but cannot afford the medical fees to correct their condition. COME ON SAMA WISE UP!
