#SAHHA2019

SOUTH AFRICAN HIP HOP AWARDS 2019

25 November 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

South African Hip Hop came together once again at the Gold Reef City Lyric Theatre on the 20th of November 2019 for the what is arguably the biggest night on the South African Hip Hop calendar, the theme was “The revolution will be computerized" and this could be seen everywhere during the show from the stage, the lighting, graphics, skits and even the trophy girls were dressed in futuristic outfits which blended well with the “strictly formal” that all patrons and nominees had to wear to witness the awarding of the pyramid to the highest achievers.
The show started with an electrifying performance from Youngsta CPT who was also one of the biggest winners of the night taking home Best Album for 3T and Best Video for YVR, alongside him was Flame who took Best Male and Best Newcomer sponsored by Stylin' Dredz for the third year in a row with his debut album titled “CandyMan”. World renowned rapper Cassper Nyovest also took home Hustler Of The Year and Best Promoter for “Fill Up”, this comes after his Family Tree signee Nadia Nakai took home Best Female making it her first SAHHA trophy. One of the most contested categories is “Lyricist of the year” and after 7 years of gunning for the title and a song about the category later, rapper Ginger Trill finally took this one home and fans couldn’t be happier to see this unfold.
Another surprise was Beast winning Best Collabo for “Hello” featuring Sjava, which was pleasing to everyone in the auditorium.  One of the longest running brands in South Africa Butan took the Best Local Brand after two years of reigning by SGOD and this transcended into Emile YX and Falko being awarded one of the most important awards of the night, the Ubuntu Activism and Honorary Award sponsored by Hennessy who also had a special announcement about their partnership with the South African Hip Hop Museum where they will be inducting a panel of inductees into the "Hennessy Wall Of Fame" on the 5th of December 2019 at Museum Africa.
Some of the performances of the night included Gigi Lamayne with tribute to all the GBV abuse victims, Touchline, Yanga Chief with a performance of the song that took song of the year “Utatakho”, the proceedings also had a tribute to fallen solider, rapper and TV presenter Crazy Lu who was a part of phenomenal group “Jozi”.  Through it all, we saw the official hashtag of the night #SAHHA2019 trending at number 1 with only positive reviews from all of its contributors.

Watch all of this entertainment and more as South African's Hip Hop Royalty goes head to head for the biggest titles in the industry on the 8th of December 2019 on Mzansi's official storyteller SABC 1 - Mzansi Fo Sho at 20:30
