The SAMAs go virtual and will take place in August

The South African Music Awards (SAMAs) this year will be taking place virtually due to the Covid-19 outbreak in South Africa.

The SAMAs are following the pattern of other awards ceremony in taking place virtually and all one can do is hope that it takes place without a glitch.

This year the awards will be moving from the SABC to Mzansi Magic and will take place over five nights.

The episodes will take place from August 3 to 7 August at 21:30 and will broadcast from 30 minutes except for the grand finale which will be 45 minutes long.

2020 Sama awards split into 5 episodes as the show goes virtual ...

This year the awards will be celebrating #ForThaKultcha.

No hosts for the awards have been announced, last year Bob Mabena and Melanie Bala hosted the awards.

Do you think the awards being moved from the SABC is a good decision?
