The South African Music Awards is a premier music showcase hosted by RiSA. This annual event honours the country’s finest music talent over two days in key categories, as they battle for the South African industry’s highest honour – a statuette at the South African Music Awards.
Nominees also take the stage by storm with a series of epic, never-to-be-repeated performances, as the nation watches SA’s finest talent at work.
For the first time ever the awards have migrated to SA’s real sun city – where the sands are golden, the weather is warm and the sun is always shining. Catch the 22nd edition of the SAMAs live from the Durban ICC on June 4th 2016.
