As part of celebrating Mother’s Day, Magic Promotions has awarded some influential women who have made notable achievements in different categories.
The awards took place at Sheaffer ICA Marque in Lilongwe on October 15 2018 where musicians such as Maggie Mangani, Princess Chitsulo, Evance Meleka, Walusungu Kishombe and Andy Seko performed.
Mulanje West legislator Patricia Kaliati was awarded for her contribution in politics as a legislator and minister in different portfolios as well as serving in different top political positions.
Other awardees are Carol Bapu, secretary general of Netball Association of Malawi (NAM), Faith Malenga of Moyo wa Thanzi Herbal Clinic, Gladys Masina of Glarry Stationery, Deliwe Makata of Women Inspire and Rudo Mkukupa-Chakwera of Musicians Union of Malawi (MUM).
Receiving the award, Kaliati said she was excited to be recognised as an influential woman in politics.
“I am happy to celebrate Mother’s Day with an award. I thank God for everything and I don’t take this for granted,” she said.
Kaliati, therefore, urged Magic Promotions to continue promoting the growth of music industry in the country.
In an interview, Magic Promotions communications director Chris Loka said they are happy that the awards have received positive feedback and women are excited about them.
“We are receiving positive feedback and people are excited about the awards. They are encouraging us to continue with the same saying the recognitions will motivate women to work extra hard in different sectors for future recognition,” he said.
Loka said the company is passionate about women and would like to see them succeed.
He added that Malawians should expect a lot from their company, claiming they have good plans towards boosting the gospel music industry. He thanked Women Coalition Against Cancer (Wocaca), Zodiak Broadcasting Station, Peacock Seeds and GT Fresh Tours for their support towards the success of the event.
