035 Awards to recog­nise lo­cal stars

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO CITY BEAT - Welling­ton Mak­wakwa

In­di­vid­u­als mak­ing waves across the Zu­l­u­land re­gion will be recog­nised dur­ing the 2nd an­nual 035 Awards at Em­pan­geni Civic Cen­tre on Satur­day, 1 De­cem­ber.

The com­mu­nity ini­tia­tive is headed by home­grown dancer, en­ter­tainer and founder Jonty Stander of SA’s Got Tal­ent fame with the aim of ac­knowl­edg­ing lo­cal stars.

‘Af­ter the first awards last year, we saw the im­pact they have in the re­gion and wanted to con­tinue recog­nis­ing our lo­cal tal­ented peo­ple.

‘The idea came be­cause I could see lack of recog­ni­tion for my fel­low en­ter­tain­ers who are hus­tling to get to the top. This re­gion has too much tal­ent which stayed un­recog­nised, so these awards serve as a plat­form to show­case that we can com­pete with the best in the coun­try.

‘For years, re­gional artists have voiced their dis­sat­is­fac­tion for not hav­ing any recog­ni­tion or plat­forms to show­case their craft,’ said Jonty.

Since the news of the awards, so­cial me­dia has been buzzing from Zu­l­u­lan­ders who be­lieve the awards bring pos­i­tive im­pact to the re­gion.

The event will also fea­ture lo­cal beau­ties who will be gun­ning for the Miss 035 beauty ti­tle.

The show will in­clude live per­for­mances by Jonty Stander, Noid Supremo, Young Scar, Kris Karma, Diba Short­steiger, Hur­ri­canez and a huge line-up of lo­cal artists.

It will also fea­ture a fash­ion show from var­i­ous de­sign­ers such as Rude­gangSA, RARE, Pure Race, Head­line, El Dam­bie, Gotta be rich, Triple C and many more.

The awards will be­gin at 2pm.
