Fans claim the SABC Crown Gospel Awards results were unfair. Fans voted for their favourite artists, but since the awards took place on Sunday night some fans had been complaining about the Artist of the Year and Song of the Year category winners.
Chumani Ngojo won Artist of the Year award, while Jumbo walked away with Song of the Year for Engipha.
Some fans were hoping Sbu Noah would take Song of the Year for Ewe Getsemane.
For the past week, social media users had been complaining as most didn’t know who Jumbo or Chumani were. Awards’ founder, Zanele Mbokazi-Nkambule, had been facing backlash with many commenting negatively on a post she shared.
Some had even called for the awards to be cancelled.
One comment read: “Wena, cancel this thing of yours. We all know Sbu’s Ewe Getsemane was the biggest song in the gospel this year.”
Zanele responded by saying: “Don’t be full of it. How do votes concern me? If Sbu got 18 000 votes and Jumbo 70 000, how’s that my business?” She’d since deleted the comment.
Daily Sun made numerous attempts to contact Zanele via WhatsApp and calls, but her phone rang unanswered.
