NAMAs gets it wrong with Lioness

The Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMA) pulled a fast one with Lioness, they posted the wrong image while encouraging the public to vote for her in the category for Song of the Year category for NAMAs 2019.

Instead of a picture of Lioness they uploaded a picture of South African artist Boity. This is not the first time there is a mix up between Boity and Lioness. In May 2019, SA Hip Hop Magazine also did not mention Lioness when they were highlighting a Coke Studio collaboration between Lioness, Boity and Nazizi for their song Switch it up. Many social media users were not happy about Lioness being left out and demanded SA Hip Hop Magazine put some respect on Lioness’s name.

Maybe it was just a coincidence and an honest mistake from the NAMAs team and the post has since been deleted from their Facebook page and replaced the old post with a new one, with the correct picture of Lioness.
