Namibia’s annual music award show will take place over an eight-full weekend period starting from August 15 to November 14, the show organizers announced Wednesday.
The coveted music awards, better known as the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMA), are an annual award ceremony run by MTC Namibia and the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation.
The awards exist to recognize accomplishment in the Namibian recording industry by celebrating those groups and individuals who have excelled in the past year

This year’s ceremony will award four categories over a full weekend, two on Saturday and two on Sunday.

NAMA currently in its 10th year will be exclusively available to view to people who bought a ticket to the show.

NAMA executive chairperson Tim Ekandjo in a statement said that ticket will gives access to the live show and in addition, the ability to view the NAMA concert again within 48 hours afterwards.

He also said that all of the concerts will be re-broadcast again to everyone else, on NBC Television as well in three days after the live concert happened.

According to Ekandjo, all the nominees in the categories will have an opportunity to perform their nominated song which essentially unlike previous years gives every nominee an opportunity to perform this year.

“This year we will also give every nominee a flat participation fee of 3,000 Namibia dollars (174 U.S. dollars) taking into consideration that COVID-19 has resulted in a loss of income for so many artists,” he said, adding that all proceeds from ticket sales will go to a COVID-19 relief fund in support of Namibian artists and the live music entertainment industry.

According to Ekandjo, a total of 1.2 million Namibia dollars will be paid out in prize monies.
