NAMAs remain predictable

By Rosalia David

THE Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) first episode which took place last weekend ended the night with songstress Adora and Sally Boss Madam taking the awards home.

Adora won best Collaboration with the song ‘Sim Di A’ featuring Jayden while Sally scooped the best Afro Pop award for ‘Centre’ featuring budding dancehall musician Don Kamati.

Truthfully speaking, NAMAs have never really drummed up much suspense when it comes to the winners. Throughout the years, it has normally been easy to predict the winners of the show.

However, one cannot deny the fact that the musicians’ performances made the opening show interesting.

PDK performed their ‘Saka’ smash song alongside Topcheri and Athawise pulling off an amazing show with one dancer and the artists dancing to choreographed moves.

Rapper KP Illest also gave his fans a good performance with Lioness backing him up on a song titled ‘Energy’ – which features Nigerian hip hop recording artist Ice Prince.

Meanwhile Sally performed her song ‘Centre’ alongside the resident live band, delivering a rather subdued performance.

However Bertholdt owned the stage perfectly performing a Damara punch song in legendary style. Not many can perform live dancing and still continue to sing without the voice cracking or running out of breath.

Special mention goes to Monique English for entertaining music lovers with her performance after a long time.

Finally let us acknowledge another superstar of the awards, rapper Lioness’ outfit designer known as Official Foxxy. She should be given her own award for making an outstandingly breathtaking outfit for the rapper.
