MBABANE – He successfully led the committee organising the MTN SWAMA Awards and now he is the President of the Swaziland Arts and Music Association (SWAMA).

This is none other than Melusi ‘Zox’ Dlamini who now heads the country’s artists association. Dlamini was elected as the President during the association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at the Swaziland Water Services Corporation’s (SWSC) Boardroom on Saturday. Artists felt Zox was the right person to lead the association and  he successfully won the elections. He was nominated together with Ambrose Zwane and former SWAMA’s Secretary General (SG) Dan Dlamini. Out of the three names that were nominated, seemingly the artists knew who they wanted as the president. Zox became the overall winner as he got 19 out of 30 votes.  As soon as Zox’s name was raised, most of the artists who attended raised their hands as a sign of receiving him. Joining him in the new committee is radio personality Lindelwa ‘Lindz’ Mafa who was elected at the vice-president. Also getting a top post in the association is former Ncandweni Christ Ambassadors member Thabile Mdluli who is the association’s Public Relations Officer (PRO).

Mdluli, who is Quad Element’s manager, was one of the favourites for  the position. Another famous figure in the new look committee is Swaziland Beverages Manager Nqobile Simelane. She will be in charge of the finances.
It was revealed that Simelane had been assisting the association with its accounts  for sometime. Making his first address as the President, Zox thanked the outgoing committee for their great work, saying they had done a lot to make sure that the association was where it was today. He said he had faith that his committee would work hard in improving the association’s status. The new committee is expected to be in office for the next three years.
