25th SAMA Winners: South African Music Awards

Every profession has its own celebration for the people who are top of their field. The Oscars are for the movie industry, the Grammy’s are for international musicians, and South African musicians we have the SAMAs. 

The 2019 installment of the SAMAs took place over the weekend, and we at Paul Bothner Music want to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners.
