  38. mpho Wednesday, 31st March 2010 / 2:45 pm

    Good Day,
    I am very disappointed on the sama’s this year. They dont give us a chance to buy tickets that we can also afford only the one’s for R120-R150 that you must go and sit with teenagers and cannot even hear what has been said. Better to watch them on TV.What happened to tickets for R300 OR MORE This means if you dont know anyone from MTN then you’ll never see better chances.PLS HELP WHERE TO GET TICKETS I DONT MEAN THE VIP ONES.

  39. Brenda Monday, 29th March 2010 / 9:33 pm

    Black coffee all the way, I love you Juju… I say give it to me!

  48. Lumko Leqela Tuesday, 16th March 2010 / 12:35 pm

    Record Of The Year looks like quite a tight one, my best guess is the people might give it to Big Nuz, Winnie Khumalo, Black Coffee or even Rhythmic Elements – can’t wait.

  49. Aviwe Monday, 15th March 2010 / 11:56 am

    Not very much pleased with the fact that PRO KID is not on the Record of the Year category,maara why?

  50. Rachel Wednesday, 10th March 2010 / 10:54 am
