Yezi Arts Promotions and Productions (YAPP) will make a financial contribution of K5million towards the hosting of the annual Ng’oma Awards to be held in Kitwe on Friday December 4, 2009.
We have decided this year to support the hosting of the annual Ng’oma Awards unlike last year where we were a contestant and won the 2008 Best Documentary Award with our production ‘Battle for Kavalamanja in Defence of the Nation’. This year, we are supporting the National Arts Council so that it can achieve its objective of hosting the annual awards. I must state this is not the first time we are doing this but we continuously find ways and means of growing artistic activity in this country, and this is one sure way we can do it as a strategic partner and ardent supporter of growing the creative industry in Zambia”.
Besides the financial support, YEZI Arts will also provide opportunities for discussion on the Ng’oma Awards (pre- and post the activity) on the weekly ARTS In Perspective radio programme hosted every Monday on Radio Phoenix.
