Ukhozi FM listeners have sharply criticized uKhozi FM on social networks for supposedly showing favouritism in selecting the song of the year. This follows after Dj Tira’s Summertime was selected as the song of the year (2012) on uKhozi FM. Most people on Twitter and Facebook appear to have been expecting Dj Vetkoek & Mahoota’s via Orlando to be the song of the year.

Some people believed that Dj Sgqemeza had an influence in the selection of the song of the year since he and Dj Tira are known to be friends. To try and resolve the situation, Mandla Magwaza (Njinji) asked UKhozi FM’s Programme Manager Zandile Tembe to explain how the song of the year was selected. Tembe explained that the song of the year was determined by the number of votes it had. She said the top 5 songs had the following number of votes:

  • Oskido – Tsa Mandebele : 38
  • L’Vovo – Palesa : 512
  • Professor – Fingerprints : 596
  • Dj Vetkoek & Mahoota – Via Orlando : 1 874
  • Dj Tira & Big Nuz featuring Joocy – Summertime : 3 356

Therefore, Summertime had 1482 more votes than Via Orlando. Clearly, it deserved to win. However, many people were still not convinced

    It’s a sunny day and everybody’s feeliing okay, yamnandi le way. Woza sidl’i-summer… great song. I love it. I’m glad it was the song of the year.

  2. Max says:

    The problem with Via Orlando is the beat. They sing well but their beat is boring. Ayijayveleki. Kusho u BOoo POo Poo poo kuze kuyovalwa. Ayishayi njengeye-summertime.

  3. Nzuzo mkhulisi says:

    Summertime is the best track of 2012, the votes proves that, and Via Orlando’s beat is boring, it so so irritating afta two minutes bcoz it repeats 1 and da same thing.

    THOSE WHO BLAME KHOZI FM ARE PROVING TO THE WORLD THAT THEY ARE NOT WELL INFORMED ABOUT THE MEDIA WORLD.

    UKHOZI FM 90.8 – 107.4
    LUHAMBA PHAMBILI.

  11. bongangi ntombela says:

    it might happen that those people who are not convinced at all, they are loving the song with their heart and didn’t vote for the song of their choice, so that means their voices wont make any change however the votes that promoted the won song does
