The SAHHA 2016 announcement took place last week (11 November) and Ambitiouz Entertainment as well as Family Tree were/are leading the nominees with about 18 / 19 nominations. As always, not everyone was impressed with this year’s list of nominees, with some people saying “why wasn’t Cassper Nyovest in the Lyricist of the Year list” and some people questioning how some nominees made it into the list. Be that as it may, we would like to congratulate this year’s nominees and wish them all the best. Hence the theme for this week’s playlist is around the SAHHA 2016 Best Album nominees;
