PRESS RELEASE: 2019 LIMPOPO GOSPEL MUSIC AWARDS FINALISTS ANNOUNCED. After a successful launch of the inaugural Limpopo Gospel Music Awards last year which aimed at profiling, promoting, recognising and rewarding of the gospel artists in Limpopo Province, expectations for the 2019 edition was even high. The announcement function of the finalists for the 2019 event took place at Fusion Boutique Hotel in Polokwane on Saturday, 16 November 2019 at a glamorous Gala Dinner event which was attended by the local music industry leaders, artists, media, official sponsors (Limpopo Tourism Agency and National Lotteries Commission) as well as the who is who of the local entertainment industry.

The event organisers indicated that they were satisfied with the level of participation for the 2019 event as compared to the 2018 edition which was the inaugural edition, in particular the representation of the diversity of Limpopo Province. “We are quite impressed with the level of participation this year as it covers all corners of our beautiful province, more comforting is the participation by the youth as they are the future of the local gospel industry. We would still like to urge our young generation to participate in future, in particular women so that we can have a full representation”, said Mr Augustine Nethononda: Project Manager: LIGMA

This year’s event has two additional categories, i.e., Best Gospel Collaboration/Duo as well as Best Limpopo Gospel Hot Single while the most sought after Best Gospel SONG of the Year as well as Best Gospel Artist of the Year were retained. “Our plan is to introduce at least 2 categories every year as the brand continues to grow, there is also a compelling case for us to recognise those who also work behind the scenes like the engineers and producers as they are also key in any music production setup”, concluded Nethononda. The 2019 Limpopo Gospel Music Awards is funded by the National Lotteries Commission of South Africa and is sponsored by Limpopo Tourism Agency. The main event will take place on Saturday, 7 December 2019 at Meropa Casino.
