Full list of SAMA26 winners




The prestigious South African Music Award(SAMA26) has finally come to an end, with over 30 winners.

The event which holds annually, was virtually organized this year, due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Dineo Langa and Donovan Goliath were the hosts through the 5 days.

Before the event kicked off, the organizers were dragged for the partial play with the nomination list, however, things seem a little better after the event, as some of Mzansi faves got their deserving wins.

Benjamin Dube and Prince Kaybee got the most awards, with 3 wins.

K.O’s win shook the hip hop industry, as he had a huge comeback; giving hope to the hopeless.

The award lasted from August 3rd to 7th.
