An array for Performers for the Excellence Awards ceremony Awards 2012
As we countdown to the UKZAMBIANS excellence Awards 2012, we would like to congratulate all the nominees for showing commitment passion and share dedication in their chosen fields. These individuals have been identified due to their handwork, unique abilities and unrelenting strong will to succeed.
On Saturday, 9th June 2012, the evening of the Awards Ceremony, this day will mark an indelible mark in the history of Zambians in the Diaspora. The UKZAMBIANS Excellence Awards are Diaspora Awards to celebrate highest achieving Zambians and friends of Zambia.
A number of hot acts are lined up for the night, kicking off with UK based Zambian singer Lilly Mutambo’s beautiful a cappella version of Zambia’s National Anthem later followed by her famous hit, ‘I will marry you’.
Welcome introduction from UKZAMBIANS CEO, Daniel Mwamba followed by H E the Zambian High Commissioner’s official opening speech and a gospel tribute from our sensational Gospel Artist Meleke.
During the course of dinner, we shall be entertained by an awesome State House performing Guest Zambian Comedian Victor aka Kabova so please ensure you do not choke on your own laughter as he is billed to keep you in stitches of laughter throughout the evening.
You will be treated to an array of stunning outfits and designs by Zambia’s very own fashion designer Smart Phiri as he reveals his latest designs in an exclusive fashion show using stunning models to add life form to his art.
Guests will be treated to a class act from a super-talented and mature African rhumba ensemble Afrika Jambo, accompanied by a very young upcoming Congolese singer Claudia who will give us some classic numbers from the golden directory of rhumba classics.
Back to Zambian talent in a big way to our hugely talented hip hop rapper Zar Per Ham R U who will take us into the hip hop domain with his brilliant work that will make us feel as though we are still in our teens listening to 50 Cents when all we can do is wonder how this next generation became ever so super-talented before our very eyes!
The very least we can do as their gate-keepers and parents, aunties, uncles, elders in their community is to support them unequivocally.
We owe it to ourselves as Zambians to put down our weapons of jealousy, hatred, divisions and self-centredness and come together and unite to teach our children how to love one another and learn to support each other so that they can secure a solid future for them.
Charity begins at home so let it start now with each other and let us learn to overcome our differences for the sake of promoting Zambia and putting her on the world map for the right reasons. Let’s do this for our children and show them how the power of support can help them to flourish in a healthy environment with our culture and tradition as a back drop.
With nominations closed and judging underway, UKZAMBIANS are happy to announce the name of the Zambian Charity they are supporting at the UKZAMBIANS Excellence Awards 2012 Dinner event. Ndeke Orphanage in Ndeke, Ndola houses AIDS orphans from 3years of age and above who would otherwise struggle to survive on their own.
Members of UKZAMBIANS who are affiliated with the children and are affected by their plight are keen to make a huge difference to their lives in any small way they can by donating proceeds from this event which will be used by Ndeke Orphanage with several projects.
You’ll be amazed at how far we have really come. Buy yourself a ticket and come down and see for yourself; be a part of this successful talent and experience it with Zambian pride.
Be a part of Zambian pride!
