These are the two high profile awards that Adam Howard picked up at the 2014 SAMRO Wawela Awards at a glittering function in Montecasino on Friday 28 June.
This is the second year that SAMRO is presenting this important platform, created to recognise and award SAMRO members - composers, authors, lyricists and publishers for their work in advertising, publishing and film - awards that are typically overlooked by the SAMA's. SAMRO pulled out all the stops for the event and attendees were treated to dazzling performances by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, HHP, Hotstix Mabusa and other industry giants.
"I'm thrilled to have been awarded two Wawela awards," says Adam. "It's great to see SAMRO recognise media composers like myself and other artists - and the work we do. I'm also honoured to be named in the company of other winners including MiCasa, Phillip Miller, HHP, Zahara and Joseph Shabalala. What makes the awards mean even to me is the fact that a jury of 30 fellow musicians and industry giants judged these awards - I feel very humbled".
