MWAFAKA AWARDS ALL SET
Eastland based entertainment company Mwafaka Entertainment will be holding its second Mwafaka Gospel Awards on August 14 at the Kenya National Theatre.
This year, a number of gospel acts have thrown their weight behind the awards that is on its infancy.
This year’s hosts Monique and Tony of the MOG group were more that willing to provide their services.
“It’s an honour to host an event that gives young female artistes a shoe into the industry. It reminds me of myself when I was starting out. This is something the creative industry needs,” Monique told Word Is.
Tony said, “This will be a chance for fans, sponsors and the nominees to see what young people can do in nurturing and rewarding talent. This will encourage the youth who otherwise would never have had such a platform to express and showcase their talent.”
Artistes expected to perform are MOG, Walson, Hey Z, Ngashville, Juliani, BMF, Carol Nice, Alemba, System Unit’s Mo and Sadiq.
The organizer and founder of the awards, Aaron ‘Didiero’ Kelly said he plans on making the ceremony glitzier and glamorous. “This time round we have ensured the nominees will enjoy the full star effect. We have incorporated a red carpet for them, something we did not have last year.”
Unfortunately the number of categories have been reduced due to financial constrains.
Themed ‘Chorea Drugs, Stay connected to God’, Mwafaka Gospel Awards not only aims at rewarding excellence and talent amongst the youths within Eastlands but also fight against drug abuse among the youth.
