She even said that she was called on air and announced as the winner and shared her banking details after that as asked by the station. Mathe said she has been consistent and checking with Ukhozi since March but was told she would get it in April.

When she contacted them on April, she was told the month won't end bur still nothing. She called again this week but the person who answered the call got shocked to learn that she has not been paid till now. She learnt that people who won in March competitions have been paid already.

SABC spokesperson, Gugu Ntuli said everyone who won in the song of the year competition has received their money except for one person due to technical glitches but it would be sorted in time.
