The SAMA’s celebrate and honour artists who have made an impact in different music genres, ranging from Pop and Hip Hop to Gospel and Afrikaans music. As South Africa’s only public service broadcaster, with 5 TV channels and 19 radio stations, the SABC has always provided a platform for South African music to thrive. It continues to expose audiences to new music and age-old classics comparable to the best music in the world.

 

The hosts for the SAMA’s 23 are Metro FM’s morning breakfast co-host, Somizi Mhlongo and well known comedian and host of SABC2’s “Red Cake”, Tumi Morake. Mhlongo is a much-loved theatre and television veteran as well as a singer. He returns to the hosting duties that he so ably delivered on last year, when he co-hosted with actress, radio and television host, Thando Thabethe. Morake is the reigning queen of South African comedy. She is a respected television host and a pioneer in her field.

 

The South African Music Awards (SAMAs) are the Recording Industry of South Africa‘s music industry awards, established in 1995. The winners receive a gold-plated statuette called a SAMA. The ceremony features live performances as once-off collaborations by a selection of nominees. The SAMAs are considered the South African equivalent of the American Grammy Awards: “Our team is hard at work putting together a ceremony befitting the stature of the SAMA awards. We have every faith in Somizi and Tumi that they will add that extra zing to the proceedings and leave us entertained.” Said The Recording Industry Of South Africa (RISA)CEO, Mr. Nhlanhla Sibisi

We are very proud to be the broadcast and media partner of SAMA’s23 this year. The event not only helps us deliver on our public service mandate but also provides entertainment to our audiences. Given the reach of the SABC, and its dominance of the media landscape, we have to use our resources to educate, inform and entertain.
