… Says NAMAs has a budget, lawyers if singer wants to litigate
By Jeoffrey Mukubi
MTC Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer, Tim Ekandjo, says that if Blossom wants to go to court to challenge her one-year ban from the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs), she is welcome to do so, as the music awards have “an extensive budget” and lawyers to defend it.
Ekandjo was responding to question this week, related to the ongoing saga between the NAMAs and the songstress, which saw the awards show slapping her with a ban, after alleged tribalist remarks she made on social media.
In a letter of demand, dated 15 November 2017, Blossom’s lawyers, Kadhila Amoomo Legal Practitioners, demanded an unconditional retraction of the ban within seven working days, accompanied by a public statement to that effect, in the same manner and to the same extent to which the ban was publicised.
According to the letter, the failure to do adhere to the demand would leave Blossom with no choice but to approach the High Court for an order, declaring the ban unlawful.
