  1. My name is DJ Lapaza – From Maboloka at North -west next to letlhabile township – , I want to say to metro fm awards you are the best keep on helping upcoming new artist , if someone try to complain about this year awards he /she must go to nearest scrap yard to complain , this year it was fantastic , NO MORE BIG NAMES ” I CALL IT FANTASTIKO , NOMORO UNO AS GLENZITO LIKES TO SAY – CHEERS

  2. I hate it when the big guns are not recognized in the awards its the second season now we only see the armatures go with the awards, I assume that someone is just promoting those armatures especially the song of the year it cant be that song never

  3. emtee is a real nigga, he can rap…. I mean he knows the real music but he is always high……I guess he thinks he is an AMERICAN raper
