WITH baited breath, local artists await the SWAMA Awards nominees’ announcement.

The President of the association Melusi ‘Zox’ Dlamini confirmed the last day of the month as the day for announcing eventual nominees.

The entrees for the awards closed on June 6, after a month long entry period.

A verification and judging process to identify the nominees is currently underway, building up to a star studded event where the nominees will be revealed. 

This event will be held at the Royal Swazi Spa and all artists whose entrees were received will be invited and other special guests will be announced in due course.


As it stands, only two categories do not require entrees and those are; most downloaded caller tune and the lifetime achievement award.

On the other hand, the eventual nominees of the ‘Best Gospel Artist’ category will be the opening acts for the Joyous Celebration 22 live in Eswatini show, which is slated for July 7.


With artists like Linda Dlamini, Shongwe and Khuphuka Saved Group and Police Gospel messengers, among others, being supporting acts of the event last year, one can only wonder which local artists will be supporting the choir this year.  This year’s concert will have less than six local supporting acts, a reduction from last year’s eight. local acts.
