Kabza or Zinhle? The battle for Song of the Year heats up
And here’s who the streets want
As the year draws to an end, fans are grabbing out the bones and crystal balls to predict what will be Song of the Year.
The contest for the party season's most popular song has been going for a while, but reached a new level this week when Ukhozi FM unveiled its Song of the Year contenders.
The list includes Samthing Soweto, Kabza de Small, Maphorisa, DJ Zinhle, Ntencane, DJ Tira, Sami-Tee, TNS and Blaq Diamond, to name a few.
Soon the internet was in meltdown mode, as fans slammed the list for not including more Maphorisa and Kabza tracks.
Fans of the two pointed out that their songs had been the soundtrack to Dezemba so far and pushed for one of the duo's hits to take the crown.
This list has been trash ever since van Damme made song of the year shame ... Maphorisa and kabza should be headlining this list— De gal womZulu (@Mandy_D5) December 17, 2019
Anyway, Kabza De Small is artist of 2019 by a long shot. Him and Phorry.— IG: heartyandhomecooked ✨ (@Silindokuhle_) December 17, 2019
The DJ Zinhle stans were also out in full force, promoting their queen and crowning Umlilo the number one song of the festive season.
Don't let someone tell you otherwise, Umlilo by DJ Zinhle is the best song of the year.— Lemor (@EmperorG24) December 18, 2019
Others joked that load-shedding or that track you Bluetoothed from yours friend's phone should be song of the year.
