Kwaito star blasts YAMAs for ‘Dumalana’ snub

Kwaito star Vee Mampeezy has slammed Yarona FM for ‘snubbing’ his hit song ‘Dumalana’.

Last Thursday, the radio station announced the nominees for the sixth edition of its popular awards show, the YAMAs.

Despite boasting over four million views on YouTube, ‘Dumalana’ failed to make the ‘Song of the Year’ category, much to Vee’s dismay.

Instead, the six tracks that will battle it out include: ‘Rolling Stone’ (ATI), ‘Peter’ (Bouncy), ‘Rejection’ (DJ Kuchi featuring Han C), ‘Dlala Ngamla’ (Girly), ‘Re ma Afrika’ (Phologolo featuring Zakwe) and ‘Cream’ (Veezo View featuring Ason).

Speaking to Voice Entertainment this week, Vee remained adamant his single should have been nominated.

“I am worried. If it was someone else who had such a big song how would it affect them? The station has decided to turn a blind eye but one need not be a rocket scientist to figure out that ‘Dumalana’ was the best song of 2019!”

When Voice Entertainment suggested it was perhaps a sense of entitlement that made Vee feel this way, the artist responded immediately, “This is the first time I am speaking out about this. I am just saying let us be fair. I have never ever complained in the previous years. So no I am not entitled!”

Another big name to miss out on a YAMAs nomination was Double Up with his single ‘Thukwi le Mala’.

There was also confusion surrounding DJ Kuchi and Han C’s ‘Rejection’ nomination. Released in November 2018, sceptics suggested it should not have been nominated as the awards cover 2019. However, as the single was dropped after the nominees for 2018 were announced, it is indeed eligible for this year’s YAMAs

The 2020 edition, which will be held under the theme ‘Fabulous 20’, will take place at the University of Botswana Indoor Sports Centre as organisers strive for their biggest attendance yet.

“This time around the YAMAs are back with a number of interesting surprises which will be unveiled during the awards ceremony. The YAMAs team is working tirelessly to make sure that this year’s event will be one to remember. The YAMAs brand has a new feel and the packaging is fantastic,” said Yarona FM Marketing Manager Kutlwano Monnamoncho.

A statement from the Radio Station also says, “The change of venue was due to the fact that the YAMAs have been attracting large numbers in the past years. This time around more than 3, 000 people are expected to attend the glamorous event.”

AlphaBoi

This is another one from Jay Black Productions.

“Kgarebe”, a single by Alphaboi is a groovy Afro swing track from one of the most exciting producers.

Alphaboi and the other featured artists have really done justice to the beat with their vocal deliveries.

Although her name appears nowhere on the sleeve, the female voice on the song is simply amazing.

She deserves a mention on the sleeve.

Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful song, the kind that one can play in the morning to get their energy levels up.

Rating: 7 out of 10.

BABOLOKI THEBE

Shaya would like to condemn in the strongest terms possible the seemingly rampant indiscipline among our sports stars.

On Saturday Shaya woke up to devastating news of a car accident involving two elite athletes, Baboloki Thebe and Onkabetse Nkobolo.

While still in shock as to what the two stars were doing out and about at the time when they were supposed to be in camp, Shaya received shocking news that the previous owner of the car the athletes were using had long been calling out the athlete for rowdy behavior and bad driving.

THEBE’S CAR

It has become apparent that Thebe had been spotted driving recklessly but ran away from the police who were still looking for him when his accident occurred.

This is not the first time Thebe find himself on the wrong side of the law.

Last year he was charged with common nuisance after a scuffle with a woman who confronted him for reckless driving.

Guys, stop with the bad boy behavior already.

You owe it to yourself and to the nation to show some discipline.
