As mentioned in posts earlier this week, this weekend sees the 17th Annual South African Music Awards take over the beautiful City of Gold.
One highlight I am very much looking forward too this Saturday, has to be the LIVE broadcast of 5FM‘s Catherine Grenfell‘s (LIVE)5 show.
The broadcast will take place LIVE on radio from Parker’s Comedy & Jive Club in Monte Casino from 5PM to 7PM with some of the SAMA nominated artists performing live as well as interviews in between all of the amazing music.
Line up for this great show, in no particular order and subject to change, is as follows:
17h00 – 18h00
Tumi & The Volume – nominated in the category Best Rap Album & Duo/Group of the year
Zakes Bantwini (tbc) – nominated in the category Male Artist of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Urban Dance Album & Album of the Year

Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm you attendance of this FREE show. Unfortunately no under 18’s .
I personally cannot wait for the performances of all these diverse and brilliant artists!
I am certain this will be quite the party starter on Saturday evening for the big event which starts right after. So follow my tweets live here (chrismaider) from both Friday & Saturday night as well as the #SAMA17 trend.
