The 16th METRO FM Music Awards, in partnership with the City of Durban (EThekwini Municipality) and the Kwa-Zulu Natal provincial government, will once again take place at the ICC in Durban on Saturday, 25 February 2017. Ticket sales are fast selling out with general tickets going for R750 and Golden Circle selling at R850.

METRO FM in the lead-up to the award will be holding exciting activations to create hype and excitement. These are the following events:

The MMA Music Workshop which is free and open to the public, will be taking place at Tate’s Kasi Grill in Clermont, is about awarding music excellence according to the voting public of South Africa, and to empower the next generation of musicians in South Africa, the music workshop seeks to educate up and coming musicians amongst other things about:

  • The business of music
  • Different music organisations (SAMRO, RISA etc.) and how they can benefit them
  • Submissions of music to radio stations & record labels
  • Packaging of music
  • Technicalities of music i.e. sampling
  • Contracts and how they work
  • Longevity in the music industry
  • Taking ones art seriously

The group has since been play-listed on stations such as METRO FM, Ukhozi FM and Umhlobo Wenene amongst others. They have released a music video that is on high rotation with MTV Base.
