South Africa’s Music Awards is the most prestigious and epic music awards ceremony in South Africa and arguably the biggest music awards ceremony in the Southern Africa region. In 2019, the South African Music Awards simply called the SAMAS will be celebrating 25 years of existence and it promises to be its biggest and the most exciting year yet for the music industry.
For the past quarter of a century, the Samas distinguished themselves as the most prestigious and premium award ceremony honouring excellence in music and performance.
And after a vibrant year which saw dance crazes, songs becoming national anthems and musicians entrenching their place as household names, competition is at its fiercest as the call to entry is made.
Entries are currently open for music released between 1 February 2018 and 31 January 2019. Industry players from managers to independent record labels are free to make their artists submissions on time.
In the last two years, the SAMAs have enjoyed a buoyant upward trajectory with the number of entries on the increase.
