The South Africa Hip-Hop Awards was first introduced in 2012 by a group called the “Ritual Media Company” and the 2019 award ceremony, making it the 8th edition.
At the just-concluded South Africa Hip Hop Awards, the categories reduced this year due to low amount of entries.
The Hustler Of The Year and MVP of the Year were merged to become just one award.
The Best Video of the Year now goes to the directors of the music videos, not the artistes.
The other categories such as Best Dance Crew, Best Graffiti and King Of The Province were dropped due to low entries.
