“For the past 14 years I have been giving awards, crowning deserving people for their excellence. On Sunday night it was my turn.

Next month I will celebrate 20 years as a professional events designer and producer, PR and marketing expert. Our most popular brand #TheCrownAwards is now in its 15th year, the biggest Gospel Awards in the African continent. BUT for me it is the number and quality of people I have been able to groom and train on the past 20 years in PR, marketing, event management, event technical directing, choreography etc. They are employed all over SA and some are running their own businesses. Thank you Global African Awards. This is for the MirrorPR & Events and World Gospel Powerhouse team.”
