The event will be presented virtually this year.

The 26th South African Music Awards nominees have been announced. Under the theme #ForThaKultcha, five hyped-up but bite-size 30-minute episodes will be streamed from 3-7 August with several sub-themes. It will be broadcast on Mzansi Magic and online. This year’s nominations sees a good balance of established artists and upcoming music icons that have taken the country by storm.
