The announcement of the 7th Annual South African Hip Hop Awards (#SAHHA) nominations on Monday has left tweeps divided, especially over hip-hop newcomer Boity's inclusion.

However, the inclusion of the "Wuz Dat" rapper was not the only announcement — or lack thereof — that had hip-hop fans scratching their heads. 

AKA and A-Reece were also noticeably absent from the nominations list, while lyrical giant YoungstaCPT also omitted from the Lyricist of the Year category.

However, there were some fans and industry friends who were overjoyed about Boity's first nomination and congratulated her on the achievement.
