NAMAs apologise to Lioness for picture blunder

Lioness says it’s all love and never hate.

This afternoon, the Namibian Annual Music Awards committee posted a post encouraging Lioness fans to vote for her. The team, however, used an image of South African artist Boity Thulo instead of the Bad singer.

Having realized their error, the post was removed and replaced with a correct picture of the Namibian rapper. Lioness later, on her social media platforms shared an apology from NAMA with the caption “All love, never hate”.

The letter from the NAMA executive producer stated that the blunder was an honest mistake made by the design team who work with hundreds of images.
” In this very unique and unfortunate one instance, the incorrect image was used despite our very robust system. This is a very unique and isolated incident for us and because of our robust system processes, this has never happened before in our history. However, we do acknowledge in this instance it did happen due to human error, however, it should not have. Kindly accept our apologies from the entire team and we have corrected all communication materials accordingly,” read the letter.

Lioness is nominated in the category for Song of The Year with her hit track Bad featuring Slickartie. To vote for her, SMS SOY2 to 6626 or vote online. The NAMA will take place on 7 September at the Dome in Swakopmund.
