Recording industry admits there was an oversight in Nasty C video nominations

Organisers of the South African Music Awards (Samas), announced overnight that two of Nasty C’s music videos have been declared ineligible for the SA music awards because they were not shown on TV before the required date.

Stephen Grootes spoke to Adv. Nhlanhla Sibisi, CEO of the Recording Industry of South Africa.

Explaining how the videos were nominated in the first place, Sibisi admits it was an oversight on their part.

In this instance because we have never really done the second verification where we go to broadcasters and ask them if a video has been flighted we have found ourselves wanting, and for that we have already said to all concerned we absolutely apologise.

Adv. Nhlanhla Sibisi, CEO of the Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA)

When we started investigating we found the following, the first one is that it was submitted on time however it was not flighted.
