      Sama nominations: Here's the A-list
      20 Mar 2013 11:15 - Rhodé Marshall

      The highlight of South Africa's awards calendar, the annual MTN South African Music Awards, has announced its selection of the country's best music.

      The 19th Sama ceremony will be held at Sun City on May 10 and 11 and will be broadcast live on SABC 1.

      Industry heavyweights Kelly Khumalo, Khuli Chana, Maleh, Ntokozo Mbambo and The Muffinz have been nominated for album of the year.

      Last year rap artists were up in arms when former Sama chief executive Randal Abrahams changed the name of the best rap album category to best street/urban album. This year, the category has reverted to its original title.

      This time around some artists expressed disappointment that the awards for best R&B, reggae and soul album have been combined into one category.

      MTN Sama chief executive Nhanhla Sibisi said special achievement awards such as international achievement, lifetime achievement and best selling mobile music download will be announced on the night.

      Record of the year is the only category that is voted for by the public, with 20 songs in the category to pick from.

      Some that made the selection were Bosso by HHP, DJ Zinhle's My Name Is, Feelings by Zonke and Walking Away by Chianosky.

      This year the Sama concert will be held in the Eastern Cape on April 27. No further details were made available.
