Walvis Bay music artists, Top Cheri and Vaughn Ahrens, won awards at the recently-held Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMA’s). The NAMA’s was presented this year for the 9th year and was hosted at The Dome Swakopmund.

Top Cheri won awards for Best Album and Best New-comer of the Year. Vaughn Ahrens won Best Afrikaans and what makes it so much more of an achievement is that it was with his song “Amen”, his first ever released Afrikaans song.
“I was overwhelmed. I still am actually still overwhelmed”, Top Cheri said after the NAMA’s. My goal for that day was to give an amazing performance, and it turned out so wonderfully well”, Top Cheri added.
Her fans can look forward to a celebration of her two awards. Top Cheri’s management is currently put-ting the details together.
Top Cheri, who is with BlvcBoxx Entertainment from its early stages, released her debut album, “Fertile” last year. It delivered top hits like “Danisa”, “Johnny” and “Hang Over”.
