The nominees were announed on Thursday evening in Bryanston, Johannesburg. Nods went to the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Nathi Mankayi, and Riky Rick.
However, K.O's name didn't come up on the list. On Friday afternoon, the rapper congratulated all the artists who were nominated, and then shared his thoughts on being snubbed.
Congratulations to all those nominated at the Metros this year!!! My album came out late 2014 yet it spawned singles that made a resounding impact in 2015 #SkhandaLove #OneTime I owe the success of those singles to all the media channels who made them as big as they became including #MetroFM 😌. Thank u to the fans as well for the support! We submitted the songs to be considered but sadly didn't make the Metros nominations list. Being overlooked at these award ceremonies (s/o SAMA☺️) has been the story and fuel behind my solo journey. I feed off of that. Soldiers don't bitch about the scars picked up on the battlefield, they simply soldier on! F*ck a flash wound, there's a war to win! New album out 2016! Love always #SkhandaGawd
This in not the first time the rapper has taken to social media to share his disappointment with awards shows.
Back in July last year, after the MTV Africa Music Awards, K.O shared how unhappy he was about the treatement he received from the organisers of the event.
