Award-winning radio personality George “Nashawn” Marenga says that he enjoyed his experinience of being the “ghost voice” at the Simply You Magazine Lifestyle and Fashion Awards (SYMLAFAs), which took place online last weekend.

Persons who perform this function can be heard making annoucements in the background during a show, but are not seen by the audience or viewers.

According to Nashawn, he was initially nervous when the organisers contacted him for the gig, because it was the first time for him being responsible for this function.

“However, I jumped at the chance because doing voice overs and live announcements are nothing new to me,” he said.

The Swakopmund-raised entertainer has been a radio presenter for Energy 100FM for the last five years. The station’s communications and creative director’s voice also entertains listeners on the “Urban Drive” show.

Although he was worried about making a mistake while performing his duties at the awards, he said that he thoroughly enjoyed it.

“It actually went smoothly. The tech crew made me feel comfortable, so I had fun. If the opportunity presents itself again, I will gladly take it,” said Nashawn.

Nashawn was nominated for the 2017 Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) Best Radio DJ of the Year Award as well as for the Favourite Male Radio Personality Award at the 2018 SYMLAFA. Unfortunately the talented go-getter left empty handed.

However, a year later, his perseverance paid off when he scooped the Favourite Male Radio Presenter Award at the 2019 SYMLAFAs.

He thanked the Simply You Magazine team for considering and choosing him as the ghost voice for the event this year.

This year the SYMLAFA Favourite Male Radio Personality Award went to the NBC’s Maldini Kushikulesha while the Favourite Female Radio Personality Award went to Ndapewa Ambambi of Eagle FM.

The SYMLAFAs have been held annually since being launched in 2017. The awards honour Namibian personalities who have excelled in their respective fields in the preceding year.

The awards are organised by owners of the fashion, lifestyle and entertainment magazine Simply You Magazine. The magazine was founded and is owned by Swakopmund-raised Helena Ngaifiwa.
