It’s official, PDK’s song titled ‘Saka’ featuring Top Cheri, King Elegant and Athawise has been voted the Song of the Year making it the biggest song according to the fans.
The song was recently performed as the closing song at MTC’s Knockout Project against Homelessness. PDK however had to work their socks off as this category was hugely contested by the likes of Adora ft Jayden, DJ Spuzza ft Chester, Don Kamati, Mega & Chakie with their hit song Soek Soek, King Tee Dee and Y Cliff.
A new NAMA record was set with the votes for the Song of the Year totalling over 210,000
“We are very pleased with the manner in which the public participated to declare this year’s
biggest song of the year” said Tim Ekandjo.
Many will agree that the 7th NAMA mini premier show was perhaps the most exciting so far
producing really world-class 14 back to back live performances from R&B, Rap/Hip Hop and
the biggest songs of 2019/20.
Lize Ehlers painted the NAMA stage red to send a powerful message against Gender Based
Violence and the presenters and artist brought their part to theme this series with countless
messages against GBV.
Adora was sultry on stage as usual and delivered a well thought out performance with her
song ‘Sim Di A’. Newcomer Antany Knows who surprised many by winning the Best Afrikaans
last weekend delivered a sleek phone call performance that will certainly be remembered for a very long time. Alta Ouses did her part in announcing her arrival on the NAMA stage with
her song ‘Believe in Love’ ft Dee Jay.
At the end of the day it was Cassidy Karon who walked away with his first solo award in the
category of Best Rap Hip Hop with his song ‘Chains’ ft Romi to declare himself Namibia’s Best Rap/Hip Hop artist.
Ethnix was crowned Best R&B artist with their soul-searching soul titled ‘Composure’ after
delivering a performance that deserves nothing than a standing ovation.
Lioness brought a different dimension to the stage with a well-choreographed performance to show why she is one of Rap/Hip Hops most lethal artist.
In the Best Pan African category, DJ Zinhle won her very first Namibian award with her hit song ‘Umlilo’ also in a category with Africa’s heavyweights with the likes of Burna Boy, Davido, Skorpion Kings and Sho Madjozi.
