Following the success of the inaugural Verse of the Year Awards last year, popular urban music website SlikourOnLife today announced the return of the awards set to take place next week.
The first of its kind accolade event, the Verse of the Year Awards were created last year following the popularity of the “Verse of the Month” show hosted by Stogie T on the SlikourOnlife (www.slikouronlife.co.za) platform. People just loved it, and so the awards were born.
Once again the search is on to find and honour the sharpest MC’s in the game over the past year.
Ten winning artists with the hottest verses will each be honoured at an exclusive and intimate event in Johannesburg next week. These winners are selected by a panel of judges including founder Stogie T; artist Zubz, Okay Africa’s Sabelo Mkhabela, and The Plug Magazine’s Mercia Tucker.
The Hennessey People’s Choice Award will be based purely on public vote and the recipient will also be honoured on the night. Last year A-Reece took the award and this year fans and friends alike can vote on the various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) using the #VOTY2018 with their selection of artist and track.

“We are excited to be hosting these awards again to acknowledge the best in the game. The Verse of the Year Awards was set up to honour MC’s for their sharp and intelligent rhymes. No doubt 2018’s selection is even fresher than the previous year”, said co-founder Stogi T and added “I’m also really looking forward to the People’s Choice Award this year so get those votes in.”
This year the awards are being held on Thursday, the 13th of February in Johannesburg.
