Get ready, music lovers, because the 29th annual SA Music Awards (Samas) is set to be an electrifying event with Metro FM’s DJ Sabby and Nomalanga “The Flame” Shozi as the hosts on Saturday night. This year’s event will be held at the SunBet Arena in Menlyn, Pretoria, and will be broadcast live on SABC 1 due to the cancellation of KwaZulu-Natal provincial government funding. The cancellation may have thrown a wrench in the plans, but it hasn’t dampened the excitement.
Alongside Nomalanga as host for SA Music Awards 29 is DJ Sabby, a familiar voice in African urban youth culture who has hosted shows including Bonisanani and Clash of the Choirs SA.
His biggest gig to date is hosting the Metro FM breakfast show. Teaming up with DJ Sabby is the charismatic Nomalanga Shozi, known for her roles on Rhythm City, Roomies, and as a presenter on BET Africa. The red carpet of the SA Music Awards will reportedly be no less star-studded, with former SMag cover star Hope Mbhele and Uzalo actress Thuthuka Mthembu bringing their own brand of glamour and charm as the hosts. The International Achievement Awards will honor Grammy winners Wouter Kellerman, Zakes Bantwini, and Nomcebo Zikode for their remarkable contributions to the music industry.
Leading the pack in nominations are rappers KO and AKA, setting the stage for an intense showdown as they vie for top honors. The anticipation is palpable as fans eagerly await the announcement of the winners. But the excitement doesn’t end there! The awards will be followed by the Africa Fest music festival, featuring an Amapiano line-up that includes Kabza De Small, Makhadzi, DBN Gogo, and other sensational artists. Overall, the festival promises to be the perfect after-party to cap off an exhilarating night of music and celebration.
