The ceremony is held in late-April or May every year, with the judging process starting in November of the previous year. The nominations are typically announced at the end of March. The winners receive a gold-plated statuette called a SAMA.[1]
The show is consistently held at the Super Bowl in Sun City, with exception of two years, and broadcast live on national broadcaster, SABC. The ceremony features live performances by a selection of nominees. The SAMAs are considered the South African equivalent of the American Grammy Awards."

LYRICS: BUYA
(Black Coffee)

Ndamahla ndenyuka
Emini nobusuku bazo
Beng’cing uzawvel’uthi gqi
Lapha kwencimini

Ndihleli ndijonge enkalweni
Emini nobusuku bazo
Kungekho ukunyo’ngakwenza
Kwalemini

[Chorus:]

Ndiyoyika
Nd’yoyik’ ukba ngedwa
solande (solande linyi ndondo)

Buya
Dala ndikumele
Khawubuye
Dala ndikulindele

Buya
Dala ndikumele
Khawubuye
Dala ndikulindele

Verse:
It’s so hard
Being with someone that don’t love you back
You’d rather do that
And live in a lie

I thought if I became
Everything, you wanted me to be
you might never, leave me
I thought if I became
Everything, your heart desire
You’d be right here with me

[Chorus:]

Ndiyoyika
Nd’yoyik’ ukba ngedwa
solande (solande linyi ndondo)

Buya
Dala ndikumele (solande linyi ndondo)
Khawubuye
Dala ndikulindele (solande linyi ndondo)

Buya
Dala ndikumele (solande linyi ndondo)
Khawubuye
Dala ndikulindele (solande linyi ndondo)

"this is his house wake up and smell the black coffee"
-snip-
This commenter contains two clever play of words - "his house" and "wake up and smell the black coffee". "House" here is both a referent for a place where a person lives and a referent to DJ Black Coffee's music genre. The commenter also cleverly adapted the saying "Wake up and smell the coffee" which is a very familiar colloquial American saying that refers to the fact some people aren't alert in the morning until they drink their first cup of coffee. For that reason, "wake up and smell the coffee" means to be alert, to stop being oblivious to what is happening. It is usually said to prompt someone to face an unpleasant fact. The adoption of the name "Black Coffee" by this Black South African DJ may just refer to his skin color and have none of those aforementioned references. The commenter's use of the saying "Wake up and smell the coffee" with the addition of the word "black" is a witty way of encouraging people to "get hip to Black Coffee's music".

"Deep and dope."
-snip-
Both "deep" and "dope" here are used in their African American Vernacular English meaning = "very good", with "deep" having a also meaning "heavy". having a lot of layers of meaning that can be deciphered

"Toshi can sing her butt off!!!!"
-snip-
“Sing her butt off” is a compliment. It means the same thing as Toshi can sang – with “sang” being a present tense African American vernacular word meaning to sing very well, especially to sing soulfully very well.

Naidy Tshabalala
"ache this number its Dope and nice music video, is it deep house or wat, Give Black Coffee a Strong black coffee with no sugar"
-snip-
"Ache" is probably the Yoruba (Nigeria) word "ase'"(ashe)".
Here's a definition of that word:
From http://www.aseire.com/meaning.php
"Ase is generally defined as "the power to make things happen" and also refers to the spiritual life force that flows through things, much like the Chinese concept of chi. Ase can also be used to express agreement -- saying "Ase!" can be like saying "Right on!" Ase is also a way of saying, "so let it be" and is used by Orisa worshippers in the way "amen" would be used by Christians following a prayer. "
