The organisers of the South African Music Awards have disqualified Good Girls and Don't Do It from the nomination list. The videos were nominated in the Best Music Video category.

The organisers tweeted:

"We have determined that the videos were not flighted before the closing date of the entries of 31 January 2017 as required by the SAMA rules.

"We have always trusted that music videos submitted for this category have been flighted by broadcasters during the specific entry period.

"This case has proven us wrong and we accept full responsibility for our oversight to further verify whether the music videos were flighted,"

The office has also said that they would announce replacement nominees soon.

Nasty C's nominations are now down to five, making rapper Kwesta the most nominated artist.
