This year, it must be said, the South African music industry will be tuned in to see if the #SAHHA2018 has improved in making the correct and deserved choices in selecting their winners.

The award ceremony seeks to celebrate Hip-Hop musicians who have achieved and grown a lot in 2017/2018. According to the #SAHHA2018 website, the awards ceremony is managed by the Ritual Media Group (RMG). The coveted award comes in the form of what they call the Pyramid.
