Girley Jazama scoops 2 Sotigui Awards

The Namibian film and theatre industry gets to celebrate once again as multitalented actress Girley Jazama brings home two awards from the recently concluded Sotigui Awards. Held in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso over the weekend, Jazama walked away with Best Actor of Southern Africa as well as the Sotigui D’or award  for her role as Sylvia in The WhiteLine movie.

Sharing her excitement, the actress took to her social media a picture of her draped in a honeycassiedesigns number saying:

NAMIBIA we won Best Actor Of Southern Africa as well as the Sotigui D’or award at the 2020 @sotiguiawards for my role as Sylvia in @thewhite_line ‼️‼️‼️‼️

The White Line follows the life of Sylvia Kamutjemo, a young woman working as a domestic worker who is pregnant and separated from the love of her life by an invisible white line that will divide an already divided country. Pieter de Wet, an Afrikaner police officer, is conflicted between his sense of duty to his job, race and the love of his life, Sylvia.

Themed “Culture of Peace: The Contribution of Women in Cinema and Audio – Visual, the awards that were co-hosted by Namibian Adriano Visagie, are an initiative of the Academy of Sotigui, African Cinematographic Arts and the Diaspora, in partnership with the Panafrican Festival of Cinéma and Télévision of Ouagadougou (FESPACO).
