The wait is finally over as the Namibia Annual Music Awards organisers will be announcing the 2019 nominees for the awards show that will take place on 7 September this year.

Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs at MTC, Tim Ekandjo announced earlier this year that the NAMAs will have a new category which is The Artist of the year category.

“The new category will now see the best talent in Namibia, whether being male or female compete in this category on an equal platform for the accolade of the overall Best Artist of the year in Namibia,” he shared.

“Moving forward the Best Producer nominees will be decided by the top five overall best scores received from the judges vote for musical entries nominated within the Best Male,Best Female and Group/Duo of the year categories,” added Ekandjo.

Entries for the Best Music Video category will now only allow one entry per artist.
