Most memorable NAMAs 2019 performances

By Selma Shiwaya

From showers on the stage to eagles flying in and chelete rain, we take a look back at the past weekend’s explosive showcases.

It was a night of high spirits last Saturday at the Dome in the coastal town of Swakopmund as the 9th edition of the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) 2019 concluded.

It was not just the star-studded lineup and electrifying performances that set the stage alight but mostly the amazing artistic stunts that stole the show. Songstress Lize Ehlers made an entrance on a black horse while performing the ‘Fantastic Sam’ song. Recognising the violence against women and children that have been plugging the country lately, Lize Ehlers’ performance featured women dressed in black holding their fists up.


The ‘Deeper’ hitmaker Holly Rey, sandwiched by her entourage, rode into the NAMAs on a motorbike.

Sally bossed the show with a performance of ‘Net So’ on a carved wooden eagle that set tongues wagging on social media.

Y’Cliff stormed the NAMAs with a performance of ‘Drowning in my feelings’ in a bathtub.

Skrypt also held it down for Hip Hop with his performance under a flowing shower.


Kanibal ensured that his performance was inclusive as he had sign language interpreter Selma Moses on stage with him.

More ecstatic performances were delivered by Allen Jonathan, Tate Buti, TopCheri, Exit, Sean K, and Good Soul.

Gazza gave an electrifying performance on the winning song ‘Chelete’. Meanwhile, the crowd couldn’t hold it still for Jericho as he joined the rest of Nam Gospel United on the song ‘No Longer Slaves’.

Sunny Boy got the crowd on their pulsating beats with his summer hit bringing closure to the stirring event in the Namibian entertainment calendar.

Despite the few surprises and glaring omissions NAMAs have come and gone and left us with memories, we will hold on to for some time.
