Posted by radio On May - 22 - 2013

Which music creators have truly put South African music on the global stage?  At an event held in Johannesburg today, SAMRO announced the long-awaited list of nominees for the inaugural WAWELA Music Awards. 

 

Wawela is a Zulu word meaning “go beyond” – a fitting description for the talented nominees in these prestigious awards. Never before have so many South African composers, songwriters and performers made their mark as music ambassadors around the world, across a number of media formats. 

 

“We’re proud to pay homage to the success of those who have put South African music on the map and to the legends of local music that have paved the way through their extraordinary lifetime achievements,” said SAMRO Deputy CEO, Sipho Dlamini. 

 

The much-anticipated WAWELA Music Awards ceremony, which takes place on 28 June 2013, is set to be an exciting and glamorous evening, with many musical stars in the South African firmament as well as major industry players in attendance. 

 

“These awards, the first of their kind in the country, are an important event on the musical calendar,” said Dlamini, adding: “On the night of 28 June, we’ll be gathering to give South Africa’s songwriting trailblazers the recognition that is due to them.” 

 

Today marked the announcement of the nominees in the Standard Awards section in the WAWELA Music Awards, which were open to SAMRO members. Composers were selected across a range of genres, styles and categories. 

 

“These pioneers of our music industry will be celebrated and recognised for their achievements that go beyond just commercial success,” affirmed SAMRO General Manager: Marketing, Tiyani Maluleke.  

 

A number of Special Awards will also be handed out on the night, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, the Breaking through the Borders Award, and awards for Publisher of the Year and Prolific Catalogue of Works.
