The voting lines for the 13th Metro FM Music Awards are officially open following the announcement of the nominees during an event held at the Turbine hall in Newtown, Thursday night.

After weeks of waiting with baited breath - artists, record companies and fans now know whose name has made it on the list.

The night proved to be a very good one for newcomers Uhuru and Naima Kay who managed to earn themselves four nods.

Mafikizolo also received five nominations with two of their hit songs being selected in the 'Song of the Year' category. They were closely followed by afro-soul singer Zahara and another newbie, Indwe with 3 nominations each.

Not to be outdone, Mi Casa's new album Sucasa and their single ‘Jika’ got nominated for the 'Best Dance Album' and 'Song of the Year' categories respectively.

In conjunction with the awards ‘celebrating 20 years of our democracy’ theme, kwaito legend Mdu Masilela entertained the guests with a mash-up of his classic hits, loved by fans over the years.

Hosts of the evening DJ Sbu and Zeal also announced that the 'Song of the Year' category would now feature 10 songs instead of 8 and that the trophy had been given a new and sexy look.
