15th September 2018 – the day Limpopo’s finest in the entertainment industry will walk the red carpet at Meropa Casino, 5km from the capital Polokwane, in celebration of the province’s best musical talent at the second annual Limpopo Music Awards (LIMA).
The LIMA seek to honor excellence in music by Limpopo based artists and those with strong Limpopo origins.
With the well-attended affair in 2017 and black carpet experience that left many with FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), as who’s who showed off their best rags on social media, the much anticipated #LIMA18’s ceremony is promised to be a memorable one.
“We are moving to another level, production wise; we expect the awards to be more inclusive and uncover new talent,” said the awards founder, Fortune Maswanganyi – popularly known as DJ Cappuccino.
One of the main objectives of the awards is to create a glamorous/dazzling awards ceremony and television show that promotes the endowment of musical talent in the Limpopo province. In addition, the aim is to promote unity and harmonious living among the different denominations using music as an art discipline.
