MBABANE - The arts industry is a fundamental aspect of a country and the new government is recognising this.

Newly-appointed Prime Minister, Ambrose Mandvulo Dlamini and the Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs Harries ‘Madze’ Bulunga have confirmed their presence at the second edition of the MTN SWAMA Awards, tomorrow to be held at the Royal Swazi Spa Convention Centre in Ezulwini.

This was revealed by the Swaziland Arts and Music Association President, Melusi ‘Zox’ Dlamini who said even other cabinet ministers had promised their presence.

The PM has always supported the arts as seen through the multiple sponsorships while he was still MTN Eswatini CEO.
Dlamini said they were humbled by his support.


“We are truly honoured by their confidence and confirmations and we promise nothing but the best of local entertainment,” he said.
All is set for the awards as the stage is set, rehearsals have been done, presenters are ready and tickets are selling out very fast.
“Only 20 tickets remain and people can purchase them only at two MTN Service Centres - Manzini and Mbabane. Artists who are nominated are also urged to collect their tickets from the MTN Golf Club in Ezulwini before 9pm today,” he said.


The yellow carpet activities will be from 4pm to 6pm.
“After 6pm, we are expecting dignitaries to arrive and by 6.45pm everyone should be seated and the show will start at 7pm sharp. We urge people to keep time as we will start at 7pm, sharp rest assured. We have promised the head of government this and we do not make promises which we will keep.

“People should note that sitting will be allocated per ticket and all tickets have a seat number, so our ushers will work hard to make sure that sitting procedures are flawless. Our proud sponsors Sibebe Premium Lager and Imbali Gin will be ready to take care and reward the early birds with some local flavoured complimentary drinks,” said the president.
