NBC still has not secured sponsors for NAMA’s

NBC still has not secured sponsors for NAMA’s The Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMA), a cornerstone of Namibia’s music industry, are currently navigating uncharted waters as the event strives to secure sponsors.

While the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has been at the helm, the absence of sponsors has cast a spotlight on the challenges of sustaining this celebrated musical showcase.

Beaulah Boois-Beaukes, the Public Relations Officer at the NBC, recently confirmed the corporation’s commitment.

“We are currently looking for sponsors. We will communicate once we have a sponsor on board.” Boois-Beaukes said.Despite the transition in control, the quest for sponsors continues to be a critical endeavor for the continuity of the event.

Music analyst and radio host, NSK, also sheds light on the intricacies of sponsorship within the Namibian context saying that making significant profits within the Namibian market is a challenge.

“However, this should not deter investment. Corporates have a silent obligation to uplift the communities they operate in. Sponsors also gain exposure and leverage. Namibian music has a rich history and will continue to be a topic of conversation. The industry garners passionate opinions, especially around awards. This constant dialogue ensures that your brand remains part of people’s discussions, humanizing it,” NSK said. As the NBC persists in its search for sponsors, the delicate balance between commercial gain and community support remains a central consideration. The NAMA, beyond being a platform of recognition, serves as a cultural touchstone for Namibia, where music is celebrated, critiqued, and cherished. With the potential to enrich Namibia’s cultural fabric, the sponsorship pursuit holds the promise of continued dialogue and engagement, ensuring that the nation’s music industry thrives.
