Remarked RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi: "This move is a reflection of the changing local music landscape as seen in the rise in popularity of these three genres. The consistent number of entries and the competitiveness of the music justified the unbundling of the old Best Kwaito/Amapiano/Gqom
Album category. The Samas remain relevant and responsive to the trends in the music industry. We look forward to a great run in the new categories. I also wish to encourage our musicians to submit entries for Sama consideration before the deadline of midnight on 31 January 2021." www.samusicawards.co.za
