Some of the official performance line up for the 19th Annual MTN South African Music Awards (MTN SAMA 19) which will broadcast LIVE on SABC 1 at 8.30pm has been announced. Legendary artists across multiple genres from rock to pop to traditional to house to soul will mix it up with current superstars in Sun City Superbowl on Saturday, 11 May 2013.
The revealed line up makes up only half of the live performances on the awards night with a number of surprise collaborations and appearances to be revealed only on the night.
