SATMA Awards XII Press Statement 15-05-2017

SATMA Awards founded in 2006, are the largest Traditional Music Awards and the only ‘one of its kind’ on the African continent.  This brand has contributed a lot when it comes to the development of traditional music in this country and has also exposed traditional music across the globe. We were the first awards to reward our Award-winning artists with prizes (monetary, resources, education, etc.) and not just a beautiful trophy.

On the 20th of May 2017, Robben Island will be the host venue for the 12th Annual SATMA Awards official launch. Robben Island is a global icon, filled with heritage and legend and; as such, it is quintessentially the ideal venue to highlight the theme for this year’s SATMA Awards… “Celebrating Legends”.

This inspired theme celebrates our South African music legends as well as legends from across Africa and Diaspora.

The SATMA Awards are honored to welcome the esteemed legends, political and cultural leaders and active celebrities, who will be attending the launch.

We are also very pleased to welcome Bokone Bophirima Province to the SATMA 2017 Launch.  Led by The Hon. MEC of CATA, Ms Ontlametse Mochware, the host of the SATMA Awards main event from 2017 to 2019, we can expect that Bokone Bophirima will be well represented, by a great team of delegates and local leaders.

This media event will unveil the SATMA XII programs and activation plan for 2017. The launch will also signify the official opening of the nominations for the public to start nominating their favorite artists.

The SATMA Awards are very proud to have the SABC as their official Broadcast Partner; whose contributions and support have been both crucial and invaluable, in ensuring the continued success and reach of the SATMA Awards. The SABC will bring the best Life-Style programmes such as Selimathunzi and Roots, to give the event more magic.

The details of the events are as follows:

Launch in Robben Island – 13h00

Dinner @ Marcos African Place – 19h00

This is for media and invited guests only.

The SATMA Awards are made possible by the continued contributions of Bokone Bophirima Province (Host 2017 – 2019), National Heritage Council, SABC Television, SABC Radio, TNA Media and Ngubane & Company (Auditors).
