“I’m forever indebted to SA HIP HOP,” Yanga Chief. Yanga Chief winning the award of the year the SAMAs26 is a milestone most were least expecting especially looking into the feud that built up earlier.
The Eastern Cape born star released an album Becoming A Pop Star consisting of award winning single UTatakho. When the likes of Nadia Nakai and Cassper complained that it was unfair not to consider Nadia for nomination, most tweeps expressed that Yanga was the rapper who wasn’t deserving to be on the list. Included in the category was DJ Sliqe for Injayami, K.O’s PtyUnltd, YoungstaCPT’s 3T and Big Zulu Ungqongqoshe Wongqongqoshe.
Yanga didn’t react to the harsh words undermining his work, instead he waited until the award was pronounced his to comment. His words of thanks included him saying he was indebted to the genre.
“I just want to take this moment to let everyone know that I believe in GOD!! My story is too long to tweet, I’m forever indebted to SA HIP HOP. To the moon we go Crescent moon. Just became a POPSTAR!!! Baby! Thank You South Ah!!”
