Is it just us or are the Namibian Annual Music Awards, also known as the NAMAs always landing themselves in some hot water?

Just last week, the awards committee were executed by social media when they mistakenly promoted the song of the year category nominee with a picture of Boity-a South African female rapper instead of Lioness, whose song was actually being nominated.

This time, we can't say they are at fault with this particular artist but they ought to know that the artist D-JAY is not a happy camper.

The artist, Diogene Ochs aka D-JAY made it known on his Facebook that he is not happy that he was not nominated for the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMA) category for Best Rap/Hip-Hop.

The rapper however said he was grateful for being nominated in the Best Kwaito category for his song Mistake Me featuring Young T.

“I’m nominated for best Kwaito..I know it sounds weird but I do have a good kwaito song on the album featuring Young T. Its not my genre but the song is kwaito n was number 1 up north for a long time,” he said on Facebook.

The Champion singer said he hated that he was not nominated for the Best Rap category. “They always cut me out of best hip-hop n I hate that! But nothing’s always fair. Anyway, its the biggest night in Namibian music.” he said.

And he is right about that. After all, they say that any exposure is good exposure-so you know its a win/win situation.

The NAMA's will take place in September, so there is plenty of time to turn a couple of NAMA slip ups right
