The South African Music Awards (SAMAs) this year will be taking place virtually due to the Covid-19 outbreak in South Africa.
The SAMAs are following the pattern of other awards ceremony in taking place virtually and all one can do is hope that it takes place without a glitch. This year the awards will be moving from the SABC to Mzansi Magic and will take place over five nights.
The episodes will take place from August 3 to 7 August at 21:30 and will broadcast from 30 minutes except for the grand finale which will be 45 minutes long.
This year the awards will be celebrating #ForThaKultcha. No hosts for the awards have been announced, last year Bob Mabena and Melanie Bala hosted the awards. Do you think the awards being moved from the SABC is a good decision?
From the Sun City Superbowl to your couch! This year, #SAMA26 brings you a virtual experience as we celebrate #ForThaKultcha. Catch South Africa’s biggest stars for five prestigious nights on @Mzansimagic from 3-7 August at 21:30, streamed on #MyMuze, and repeats on @ChannelOTV. pic.twitter.com/pQHi7Ir4je
