On Wednesday, Thomas expressed how hurt he was that AboMama, which received a positive reaction from the public, did not receive even one SAFTA nomination from all the categories, irregardless of how popular it was.
"So #Abomama did not get even ONE nomination at the @SAFTAS1. Out of all the categories and all the shows nominated, a panel sat and decided that there was not a single thing that was done right on one of the highest rating dramas on Mzansi Magic." He tweeted.
He even shared screenshots of their entry approval.
He then explained that he shared the screenshots as he wanted everyone who supported the show to know that from their side, everything was done correctly and it was the panel that didn't believe they did anything right with AboMama.
Thomas was then encouraged by his supporters to not be discouraged by SAFTAs snub as he and the P.A.P team continue to do great work for South Africa's television industry.
These are just some of the encouraging words Thomas received from people;
"Well as ashilo u Drake the accolades are based on the opinions of a few individuals. Your work is loved and appreciated by us the masses and we salute you, and are grateful for great storytelling."
While another person commented by adding P.A.P doesn't need the SAFTAs to validate its talent.
"PAP needs to SAFTA to validate its authenticity & talent, you guys are black excellence..keep grafting! The content your are producing is nothing short of creative."
