The date for the annual SAMAs awards is now known. It is on July 31. More than 40 awards will be presented to musicians from South Africa. SAMA spokesperson Lesley Mofokeng said they are excited about this year’s awards. « This is our second year of containment. The event will be virtual, but we will bring back the energy, excitement, vigor and entertainment value that SAMAs are known for, » Lesley said.
« We have lessons we learned from last year. We are wiser and have improved the ability to host a virtual event. This year’s planning went smoothly through Level 4. There were some bumps in the road because we were already working on production. But things are going well now and we are already pre-registering, » he informed.
« The choice of hosts is a big problem for us. We are happy with the last two hosts we found. They are talented, beautiful and interesting to watch and listen to. They have shown great chemistry and we love them. Plus, they are not the hosts that people expect. This year, history will be made when the first ever public voted artist of the year award is presented. People will vote for the artists they love. We are excited about that. We can’t wait to see who the public chooses, » hopes Lesley Mofokeng.
