But controversial comments from artists, media personalities and fans are doing rounds on social media over winners of the night. Most of the fans have referred the awards as a vigil for dead artistes and producers who actually deserve the awards.

First of all, Producer Danz Kumapeesa (RIP) was awarded producer of the year which many have called madness because there people who produced better songs and deserved the award. Besides Nessim who is actually a four time winner produced many good and hit songs that Ku Mapeesa. Another disagreement is about Fik Fameica winning Artiste of the year and then fails to win male artist of the year. Many have referred to this as being poorly organized and the criteria used in selecting winners. Also Da Agent winning best Lugaflow song of the year beating Fik Fameica was unbelievable since the Kutama singer was a hit all over country with several hit songs like Kutama, Byenyenya among others.
