    hi killingetc.

    it specifically says at the head of the awards post “DIRECTORS & PRODUCTION COMPANIES: PLEASE DO NOT POST BLOGS OR FACEBOOKS OR TWITTERS IMPLORING FANS TO “PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!” This is not a contest to see who has the most friends who can vote for them, but rather an objective poll for fans who regularly watch music videos here on antville.”
    you’re risking getting Spoek/M Berg disqualified…


  2. Hello progosk,

    Thank you for voicing your convern. It seems you have a keen sense of observation! We were also able read that except from the post.

    However, KBWS has no affiliation with Spoek nor the production company behind the video – being a blog based in South Africa, we merely wanted to highlight the achievements of fellow South Africans.

    No harm, no foul.
