SATMA Awards 2014 Winners

The 9th Annual SATMA Awards were held at the University of Fort Hare in the Eastern Cape this year. They were split into two events. The first event was held on Friday, 17 October 2014 and the second one on Saturday. There were 37 categories in total. Saba Mbixane won the Best Traditional DJ award again this year. This came as no surprise to most Maskandi fans. Mbixane has won this award four times in a row since 2011. The Best Maskandi Album went to Amageza Amahle for their new album, Isisu Somkhwenyana. Umhlobo Wenene FM won the Best Radio Station award.

Judging by the comments of fans on social media, it seems like interest in SATMA Awards somewhat dwindled in KZN since the awards were moved to the Eastern Cape. Last year, it was reported that they would be hosted in KZN in 2015.
