DEAR South African Mu­sic Awards, You ve done a num­ber on Shwa this week it’s been one ir­ri­ta­tion af­ter the other.

The nom­i­na­tions party was a sham­bles, and the nom­i­nees CD has left a bit­ter taste in Shwa s mouth.

The seg­re­ga­tion in the pack­ag­ing of the songs had Shwa reel­ing. Please say you didn’t in­ten­tion­ally put all the black” mu­sic on CD 1 and the white mu­sic on CD 2? Was it so hard to mix the artists so that we could have a holis­tic ex­pe­ri­ence of the eclec­tic na­ture of our mu­sic? Don’t in­sult our in­tel­li­gence by say­ing you pack­aged the CDs ac­cord­ing to genre.

Who still prac­tices such bla­tant racial seg­re­ga­tion? Shame on you!
