Top 5 Suth African Dance Music Awards Nominees Announced

Following the announcement of the highly anticipated third annual official Dance Music Awards South Africa earlier this year, SA fans took to the internet to vote for your TOP 5 favourites over the past few weeks. Post the success over the past two years, the South African Dance Music Awards will this year celebrate dance music under the umbrella of 21 categories in total.

The competition which is driven strictly by social media and online interaction means there are no “panel” or judges who will dictate the nominees or actual winners.  The public has the first and last say in the winners.
