See all the nominees for Dance Music Awards South Africa 2019

Third edition of the awards will take place in Ekurhuleni on 3 October 2019 in South Africa.

“The Dance Music Awards South Africa were created to honour the leaders of the genre,” the DMSA’s Ricardo da Costa said. “This year’s response has been phenomenal with a record number of nominations in all categories. As anticipated, the amapiano category got the most entries this year, so this addition was clearly applauded and loved by the fans.”

Members of the public can vote for their favourite tracks and artists via the DMSA official website until 29 September.
