Toya Delazy

Pop sensation Toya Delazy’s stunning album Due Drop Deluxe has received the most nominations in the 19th Annual MTN South African Music Awards (SAMAs).

The nominees were announced at The Turbine Hall in Newtown last week.

Hot on her heels is another newcomer, ChianoSky, with five nominations from her debut album, Hungry, including Record of the Year and Best Producer with Crighton Goodwill.

The chasing pack contains The Muffinz, DJ Vetkuk vs. Mahoota alongside BlackByrd with four nominations each.

Due Drop was nominated for Newcomer of the Year, Best Pop Album, Record of the Year (for the song Love is in the Air), Best Producer with Jax Panik and twice for Remix of the Year, one each with Pascal & Pearce and ClassyMenace.

Oddly, Delazy failed to score an Album of the Year or Female Artist of the Year nomination.

The singer and songwriter said on Facebook yesterday that she is “humbled” adding that “it’s incredible to feel my country rates me…”

She urged her supporters to vote for her in the MTN SAMA Record of the Year category for her hit Love is in the Air. This is the only category decided on by the public.

To vote for the song, SMS ‘R’ to 083 123 7262 (083 123 SAMA). Fans can SMS up to a maximum of 10 times per mobile number, each vote counts and could make the difference in who walks away with the SAMA.
