The organisers of Nyasa Music Awards (NMAs) have appealed for support from stakeholders after announcing the date for the 2018 NMAs that will take place at the Comesa Hall in Blantyre on May 4.
The awards were inaugurated in 2017 attracting a huge response from both sponsors and the majority of stakeholders in the entertainment industry who witnessed one of the most successful awards in the recent years.
One of the organisers of the event Chifundo Maganga said the experience in 2017 was important as the awards promises more in 2018.
“The support we received last year was unprecedented and it was the reason we succeeded. This year looks promising as a lot of sponsors are willing to join us because they trust in our mission to uplift the local artists who need the platform to display their talent,” he said.
Meanwhile, The NMAs have announced one of the pre-show events which will take place on February 3, 2018. The event is dubbed African Print Party and it will take place at Fifteen Sports Bar which will feature a surprise performance and fashion show.
The NMAs is therefore calling on prospective sponsors to be part of the awards in 2018. There are several benefits enjoyed by the sponsors which include mentions in the coverage of The NMAs, branding of the pre-shows, press conferences and other related events/activities.
The sponsors during last year’s awards were Malawian Airlines, Castel Malawi Ltd, Capital Radio, Times Group, NICO General Insurance and Dusk Till Dawn.
