Next is Uncle Waffles with seven nods, followed by Kelvin Momo, Daliwonga, and Focalistic with six nominations each.

First-time nominees include some of the most celebrated and chart-topping artists right now in South Africa, namely Le Tee, Pabi Cooper and Nkosazana Daughter.

Commenting on their partnership for the 2023 edition of the South African Amapiano Awards, managing director of Bathu, said: “We are so proud to integrate the South African Amapiano Awards into our mission to help people walk the journey to their desired success.
