Clarity on the NAMAs song of the year category

They explained it and it finally makes sense.

There has been commotion on social media with how certain categories were vetted this year, particularly the Song of the Year category.This year, the category only features Gazza for Chelete, Lioness featuring Slickartie for Bad and Y’Cliff for Drowning In My Feelings. The organisers yesterday through a post on social media explained how this year’s category is different. The post stated:

“The NAMA steering committee vets the most-played radio songs across Namibia. The top five most popular radio songs will then be presented to the public for voting. The most voted song by the public from this list will then be announced as the winning ‘song of the year’ at the NAMAs.”

According to the post, for NAMA 2019, the top three songs that are nominated are the songs that received the most airplay across Namibian radio stations.

“As per the NAMA rules, only five songs are announced as nominees, but this year only the top three with a clear score were nominated. The other songs that were submitted did not meet the criteria and were, therefore, dropped off from the nominee’s list.”

Despite the explanation, members of the public still believe that certain songs should have made the cut.

Voting for all voting categories is done via SMS and on the official NAMA digital online platforms. The NAMAs will take place in Swakopmund on 7 September at The Dome.
