Both videos have since removed. The pair insinuated that the awards were rigged.

Their record company, West Ink Records has released an apology in a statement that reads:

"We wish to apologise to all our supporters and society in general for the outburst by some of us soon after the SAMAs ceremony. This unfortunate situation was due to a number of calls we were receiving from thousands of music lovers that were disappointed about outcomes of the ceremony.

"We appeal to the general public to accept our apology as we are still trying to grow as young people. This mistake was no means intended at casting aspersions to organizers and judges of this event. Furthermore, we were in no way or whatsoever trying to undermine any of the winners. We wish to congratulate all those that won at the awards ceremony."
