The Executive Mayor appreciated the organisers of Limpopo Legends Awards for organizing an important occasion paying special tribute and spreading recognition to the legends who portray excellence in their fields of expertise. This happened at Jack Botes Hall in Polokwane on 04 November 2023.
“We take this opportunity to thank LILA for this initiative, the legwork and the multiple efforts taken in organizing this momentous ceremony of recognizing and rewarding excellence to our legends in the entertainment industry,” the Executive Mayor said.
She also thanked MEC for supporting these awards which are in line with DSAC programs that pursue the transformation agenda of using arts and entertainment as a catalyst for nation-building, social cohesion and poverty alleviation.
“As a District Municipality, we acknowledge that many of our legends are the products of many years of mentorship and advocacy – whose talents were identified from an early age. No one’s potential in our Province should therefore be missed or left out especially considering the fact that every child is born with a particular talent – be it acting or singing etc – which, if identified and put to good use, can uplift their families out of poverty. And as the artistic capital of Limpopo, the Capricorn District Municipality stays committed to programmes that seek to rekindle the passion of artists and entertainers. She said
