As we always complain about Pitori talent not getting recognition or being overlooked, there seems to be a bit of light at the end of the tunnel for all talented individuals who strove to shine through the darkness. Last year we came to know of Tshwane Hall of Fame Awards(THOFA’s) which were in their second year and Tsa Pitori stuck to its motto which unfortunately isn’t YOLO(You Only Live Once) but the motto of keeping all Pretoria residents informed with what’s happening  in and around Pretoria, showcase talent as well as get influential people to encourage the youth to not give up on their dreams.

This year there’s more award ceremonies that also promise to celebrate Pretoria talent, and Tsa Pitori once again ele jumpisa ntho tse bline(gives insight on what’s hip and happening). Your favourite online magazine Tsa Pitori as well as our most influential writer Mawisa got nominated for awards at the first annual Tshwane Spotlight Awards, if you’re wondering “what’s that?” then it shows you’re a normal curious person.

Well according to the organisers FUCK Promoters, Tshwane Spotlight Awards are aimed at recognizing the best and the brightest artists in the arts and entertainment industry around Tshwane. The awards are presented in a variety of categories and honour both individuals and companies for their body of work. The beauty of these awards is that a nomination does not limit your contribution on the night, yebo yes you can be an MCee, DJ and still be nominated which raises a lot of questions mara o mang wena o tlo botsisa dilo tsa batho?(but who are you to question?). Categories such as best gay and best lesbian are great to raise awareness and celebrate homosexuality in our communities.

We would like to congratulate those who are nominated and the organizers as well as wishing them the best of luck for the night. There’s usually a low attendance for such events but we wish a different fate for the Tshwane Spotlight Awards(the new kid in the block). The event will be held on 1st August 2015 at Mabopane Indoors Sports Hall, let’s support proudly Pretorian events. Voting details will be revealed soon, vote for us!
