Here are the South African Hip Hop Awards 2020 Nominees

Here's the full list of nominees for the 2020 South African Hip Hop Awards.

The nominees for the 9th Annual South African Hip Hop Awards have been released. This year's theme for the award show is "The New World Order".

Osmic Menoe, the director of the SA Hip Hop Awards, explained the theme in a press release:

"After the world was reinstated to hard lockdowns where we all found ourselves confined to our homes, glued to the TV set, computers and our phones via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Tik Tok and we were told we must get used to the new normal. Thus the concept theme."
