Amanda Black leads this year’s Metro FM Music Awards nominations followed by Kwesta and Nasty C

The Metro FM Music Awards 2017 is set to go live next month and ahead of the event, nominees have been announced. Though she didn’t win Idols SA, Amanda Black looks set to win 2017. She leads nominations with five nods followed by 2016’s biggest breakout star, Babes Wodumo, Kwesta and Nasty C who all follow with four nominations.

The hotly contested song of the year category will be fiercest this year. Babes Wodumo’s Wololo, Musa and Robbie Malinga’s Mthande, Kwesta’s Ngud’, Amanda Black’s Amazulu, Dr Malinga’s Akulaleki, Durban’s Finest’s Umsindo, King Monada’s Ska Bhora Moreki, Nasty C’s Hell Naw, Lebo Sekgobela’s Lion of Judah and Black Motion’s Imali – all smash-hits from last year – are vying for the trophy.

The 16th Metro FM Music Awards awards will be hosted at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre on 25 February. See full list of nominees below.
