Cape Town - The wait is (almost) over... The Sama Amstel Record of the Year finalists have been announced!
The #AmstelROTY finalists were revealed on SABC1's Live Amp on Friday, 27 May 2016, amid much excitement and anticipation.
The 10 were chosen after members of the public were invited to SMS their vote for their favourite hit of the past year, choosing from a shortlist of 20 tracks.
The finalists are:
2. AKA - Baddest
3. Prince Kabyee - Better Days
4. Riky Rick - Boss Zonke
5. Four7 - J'Adore
6. Nathi - Nomvula
7. Emtee - Roll Up
8. TiMO ODV - Save Me
9. K.O - Skhanda Love
10. Black Coffee - We Dance Again.
Rapper AKA ended up with two songs in the top 10, but will that serve to split his vote once the winner is announced?
The #AmstelROTY will be announced during the 22nd Annual South African Music Awards, which will be celebrating Mzansi's finest sounds at the Durban ICC next Saturday. Tickets are available at Computicket, starting at R350. Viewers can also tune in to SABC1 from 8pm on the night.
