Last weekend saw the coastal town of Walvis Bay covered with the blue carpet of the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs), and with them the glitz and glamour of Namibian musicians, socialites and the South Africans musicians who attended as special guests. Both Friday and Saturday nights saw ladies dressed up to the nines, in their best wigs, as they strutted on the carpet.
The night saw beautiful gowns by South African designers like Warrick Gautier and Orapeleng Modutle. South African socialite Bonang Matheba was one of those who presented awards.
It is unfortunate that none of Bonang’s dresses on stage for the night were by a Namibian designer, although she makes an appearance in the interviews box with Ruberto Scholtz’s famous Green Venom dress. Scholtz stated on his Instagram account that Bonang specifically requested that she wear the dress irrespective of the fact that it had been worn before.
Meanwhile, the also gentlemen made sure to bring out their weekend best with navy themed suits. What would the NAMAs have been if they did not get their fair share of outfits that missed the target and severely disappointed? From the stars to the group of golden circle’s hired partygoers, who only did not dress to impress but apparently failed to get the memo instructing them to be the life of the party.
