MTC recently held an information session for musicians at the coast to shed light on the 2019 edition of the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs), where musicians were invited to enter and the rules were explained.

At the event, MTC's John Ekongo said that artists had until 26 April to enter.

The 2019 edition of the awards consist of 25 categories, with one new category, namely Artist of the Year.

“The new category will see the best talent in Namibia, male or female, compete on an equal ­platform for the accolade of overall best artist of the year. The winner will be decided by the highest score recorded from the judges' vote awarded to the winners of the Best Male and Best Female categories,” Ekongo said.

Other categories are Afrikaans, Damara Punch, Oviritje, Soukous/Kwasa, Afro Pop, Gospel, Kwaito, R&B, Rap/Hip Hop, House, Reggae, Traditional, Collaboration, Single, Newcomer, Music Video, Song of the Year, Pan African Artist, Best Album, Best Group, Producer and Lifetime Achiever.

An amendment has also been made to the Best Producer category. The nominees will be determined by the top five overall best scores received from the judges' vote for musical entries nominates within the Best Male, Best Female and Group/Duo of the Year categories.

“The category Best Music Video now only allows for one entry per artist, and only music videos produced from a master recording (master original song) that was released within the entry ­qualifying period will be considered.

The date of the awards ceremony will be announced in due course.
