By James Gwati-Daughter to the late musician, Andy Brown, Ammara has been selected to host this year’s National Arts Merit Awards (Nama) to be held tomorrow.
The prestigious awards which are held annually to honour outstanding artists will be held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organisers of this year’s awards said they want to recognise artists who raised the country’s flag high over the past 40 years and have given the event the theme “Our Legacy, Our Pride”.
Busi Ncube, Mzoe 7, Tammy Moyo, Sylent Nqo, ExQ, Anita Jackson, Nutty O, Tariro NeGitare, Jose Sax and Fadza Mutengi hit-maker Poptain have been scheduled to perform during the award ceremony.
National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) communication and marketing manager, Rodney Ruwende said: “The awards are being held virtually so there’s no actual venue for the awards. All performances are virtual with artistes performing from their respective locations.
