Comments Sibisi: ‘We have seen a year on year increase over the past two years and we await with great anticipation to see the caliber of entries for SAMA 24. The SAMAs have proved its resilience and mettle as the most coveted music honour South African artists aspire to receive. This is a call to everyone who is a qualifying artist to submit their entries for our consideration and not wait until the last day’.

The entries will be put through a stringent verification process followed by a robust judging process by industry expects as determined by record companies. They will be whittled down to the top 5 nominees in every category. The winner will be decided and announced at a star-studded ceremony later in 2018.
