Lilongwe, February 5, 2015: The organisers of the annual Music Malawi (MUMA) Awards have announced the coming in of the organisers of the country’s premier music show Lake Of Stars (LoS) which are the official technical partner in the organisation and staging of the Second Edition of the awards.
According to the press statement made available to Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Thursday, Media Corp Limited and Trocadero Consulting organise the awards in partnership with the Musicians Union of Malawi (MUM) as a platform for honoring achievements in the local music industry and supporting local musicians to realize their full potential and dreams.
Reads part of the statement, “The coming in of LoS team, to offer technical support to the awards event, promises to make this edition even bigger and more exciting as the team brings the vast experience and expertise that has for years seen the LoS growing its reputation into one of the most respectable music events both locally and internationally.”
Further the organisers would also want to remind music lovers that preparations for the second edition of the MUMA Awards are still on course and anytime soon the list of nominees in each of the categories will be announced and the voting process will be opened.
“Inaugurated in 2014 as the Musicians Association of Malawi Music Awards (MAMMA), the awards have since been rebranded and the name changed to Music Malawi (MUMA) Awards to reflect the overall mission and vision of the Awards,” reads another part of the statement.
Despite this change, the organisers promise to keep the awards as a premier outlet for honoring achievements in the local music industry and supporting local musicians to realize their full potential and dreams.
The mission for the MUMA Awards is to positively impact on the growth of the local music industry through recognizing, encouraging, nurturing and supporting overall professional excellence and the best of Malawi’s local music talent.
This year’s event is expected to be held at the Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe on February 27, 2015.
