The fifth Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) weekend premier show lived up to all expectations by producing incredible performances from the likes of Kaptein Twazis, PDK, Allen Jonathan, OC Bulan and more.

Last weekend, the artists competed for four local categories – best Afrikaans, best oviritje, best soukous/kwasa and best Damara punch – with stiff competition.

In the Damara punch category, Dixon emerged victorious by beating the likes of Kaptein Twazis, Lettie, Adora and Ou Stakes in a hotly-contested category.

Meanwhile, newcomer Antany Knows walked away with best Afrikaans to bag his first NAMA, fending off the likes of Joharetha, Berthold, Priscilla and Ms Fabby.

OC Bulan surprised many by winning the best oviritje award, beating Otjinate, Kuku Kandanga, Diop and Mulberry. PDK bagged their third NAMA this year, declaring themselves the undisputed kings of soukous/kwasa by delivering an electrifying performance. The night saw a total of 10 electrifying performances with all artists bringing their A-game to the NAMAs stage.



Pleased with progress

“I am pleased with the progress we have made with the eight-weekend NAMAs premium shows concept. So far, we have delivered all the shows with the best possible quality and the artists have certainly brought their part.

“We have now concluded five weekends and have three more to go.

On Saturday, 17 October, we look forward to crowning the best rap/hip hop, best R&B, song of the year and best pan African artist of the year,” said NAMAs executive chairperson Tim Ekandjo.

Tickets to the premium shows cost only N$50, and the events are streamed live.
