The 19th Annual MTN South African Music Awards (MTN SAMA 19) kicked off in impressive fashion in the Royal Ballroom at  Sun City on Friday, 10 May 2013.

 

Hosted by the comical Tumi Morake, the show proved to be more than just a curtain raiser to the main, live broadcast event following on Saturday night at the Superbowl, with elaborate collaborations and a star studded guest presenter list.

 

The prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards were presented by the renowned Vusi Mahlasela and Ray Phiri to three legendary icons in the South African music industry: Dr Thomas Chauke, Sizwe Zako and posthumously to Johannes Kerkorrel.

 

Popular new sensation Khaya picked up the coveted “Best R&B/Soul/Reggae Album” award.

 

Songbird Lira scooped the “Best Live DVD” for her The Captured Tour Concert Film, while DJ Kent deservedly picked up the “Remix of the Year” title for his remix of the hit Theo Kgosinkwe track, Thinking About You Ft. Zonke.

 

Jax Panix was rewarded for his sterling work on Due Drop Deluxe with the “Best Producer” award, with the talented Mark Beling getting the statuette for “Best Engineer” for BlackByrd’s album, Strong.

 

The guest presenters on the night were some of the biggest and influential names in the industry; Penny Lebyane, Ben Maitsapo, Kgomotso KG Mooketsi, Khetha Gwala, James Shikwambana, Amor Vittone, Michelle Constant, Lerato Sengadi and Jared Orlin. 

 

Keeping the crowd entertained were leading names Zahara, Riot, BlackByrd, Lindiwe Maxolo, Dr Thomas Chauke na Shinyori Sisters, Sizwe Zako, Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Teddy Bears, L’vovo Derrango and Professor. Elvis Blue delivered a breath-taking tribute to the late Johannes Kerkorrel.

 

All the attention now turns tonight’s show which will be streamed and broadcast live on SABC 1 at 8:30pm from the Sun City Superbowl.
