The Namibia Music Awards or NMA was established in order to create
and provide a suitable musical entertainment and promotional
platform for Namibian musicians, music producers, whilst offering
the public at large great rhythmatic sounds under one roof. NMA’s
main objective is to award the various musicians nominated by the
public and the media under the different supplied categories fairly
so that each unique artist’s talent is recognized and appreciated.
The NMA ceremony also provides the opportunity for well known as
well as up and coming musicians to perform during the ceremony in
order to entertain the crowd.
The Namibia Music Awards ceremony is a unique event because of its
ableness in providing transparent, truthful, objective and fair
award to the Namibian musicians. NMA recognizes all Namibian
musicians from the ages of 16 years old and above to be nominated by
the public and the media in order to stand a chance of being awarded
one of the many awards in their respective categories. The NMA event
is also a tool of promoting Namibian music to the African continent
as well as to the rest of the world. It is a ceremony of joy and
happiness because it allows all people young and old to be together
at one stand and celebrate Namibian music.
The Namibia Music Awards ceremony has a great number of categories
that were identified with the purpose to catering for most Namibian
musicians who continue to explore the music industry in search of
variety, uniqueness and sweet melodies with the opportunity of being
appreciated and recognised. Many musicians have suffered and are
suffering a great deal, because the music industry is a very tough

to work whilst others are sleeping, have discipline and respect,
bypass pride, it requires you to stand tall; be true to yourself and
believe that in the end your dream will eventually prosper.
