NAMA 16th Edition Nominees Announced. Full List Here!!!




The nominees for the 16th Edition of the National Arts Merit Awards have been released, with the key categories that prove most contentious proving to be a battle between Jah Prayzah, and high-riding god of Zimdancehall Winky D in the battle for Male Artiste of the year.


The two also lock horns in Album of the Year which pits Winy D’s Gafa Futi and Mdhara Vachauya with Fungisai Zvakavapano Mashavave’s Huya Uone Zvaakuitika largely in danger of a mauling by the two giants.

Head to head...Jah Prayzah and Winky D face off in contentious categories at 16th NAMA Edition

In the song of the year category ghetto cleric Killer T joins the war with his hit anthem Takangodaro locking horns with Jah Prayzah’s Mdhara Vachauya and Tytan’s Mukoko.

We are proud to be amongst the nominees with Our The Judas Files being nominated in the Best Fiction locking horns with previous NAMA winner and literary enthusiast Phillip Chidavaenzi’s The Latter Rain and Benjamin S Sibanda’s Whose Land KIs It Anyway?

Below is the full list of nominees for NAMA 16.
