SATMA Awards became a game changer in the music industry and brought respect, dignity & excitement in the genre of traditional music in South Africa. We brought back pride, confidence and hope to many stakeholders in this sector of traditional music. SATMA Awards achieved the following, we:
SATMA’s will have a series of online events as part of the 15th Year Celebration including online roadshows. The Annual SATMA Awards Main Event will be hosted in Mpumalanga – Mbombela Stadium, on the 5th of December 2020, We are hoping that we will host live event as oppose to virtual event depending on Lockdown Levels and it’s regulations.
SATMA Awards is the only event that honours and unites South Africans and Africans, regardless of the colour of their skin/ethnicity. However, we believe we have not done enough; we are the least funded awards, mainly because we deal with traditional music, which was previously undermined. We have very limited resources, but we are soldiering on, because this is for the nation. SATMA Awards 2020 will be honouring Traditional Music Legends and Icons from different sectors such as Radio, Comedy etc. We also honor Kings as custodians of Traditional music as well as our freedom fighters.
We really appreciate your support, and we are still look forward to working with you now and in the near future. Please spread the love of SATMA Awards, word of unity, word of love & togetherness. Hopefully, we will see you in Mpumalanga Mbombela on the 5th of December 2020 otherwise; we will meet on our online media platforms, SABC Radio & SABC 1.
