“The idea of this year’s awards was to promote local tourism and travels within the country for our winners as there are no cash prizes this year,” says Helena Ngaifiwa, an organizer of the event.

Former deputy prime minister Dr. Libertina Amadhila received the honorary award of the year. She spoke highly of the Namibian youth saying the elders are leaving Namibia in good hands. Amadhila also said she is proud of what the youth are doing to keep the culture of celebrating one another. She further added that she is proud of the outcome of the event and the organizers must keep up with the good work.

South African comedian Lasizwe was the special guest at this year’s event. He made a valuable remark saying the world is sleeping on Namibia as it is a country full of creatives in terms of music and fashion just to mention a few.
