My Pawa made me an emPawa13 Jackpot winner

Published

on

I’m Patrick, a mineworker in Solwezi. I used My Pawa to win the K100,000 emPawa13 Jackpot on 04/08. Tickets cost just K0.50. I bought 32 in total and won an extra K5,968.95 by getting 12 results right on 5 tickets, 11 correct on 10 and 10 right on another 10. This is my story…

This may sound funny but I find it very easy to win with betPawa. They have very good bonuses, very good customer care and excellent payment methods. I utilised the Lucky Dip and changed a few spots on my tickets. So in short, betPawa helped me win. This is fantastic.

I was floating on cloud nine. So unbelievable! I was actually at work when I realised I had won so I called my wife to tell her the good news. This was a deja vu for us. We were winning BIG for the second time. Last year, I won K56,000+.

I have won and so can any one of you out there. I won by using their system which is the Lucky Dip. In short, they helped me win. Isn’t it wonderful? And Your Pawa to win BIG like me is greater than ever with betPawa’s new 500% win bonus.

It’s a WRAP! Congratulations to the MTF Academy Class of 2020

Published

on

DESPITE the challenging year that was 2020, MultiChoice is thrilled to congratulate the MTF Academy Class of 2020 on their graduation!

2020 was undoubtedly tough due to COVID-19, but the ability for all the 60 students from the Lusaka, Nairobi and Lagos academy hubs to quickly adapt and transition from physical to virtual learning speaks to the world-class nature of the academy’s course, says Mrs Leah Kooma, Chief Customer Officer, MultiChoice Zambia.

“The MultiChoice Talent Factory is very close to my heart. It speaks to who we are as Africans, natural-born storytellers. Today we are here to celebrate the second cohort who were dealt a heavy blow by the COVID-19 pandemic but the challenge seems to have brought on even greater opportunities,” Mrs Kooma adds.

The students’ academic course was extended from 12 month to 18 months due to the pandemic. This additional time translated to the students today walking away with not one but two qualifications, making them even more sought-after as they re-enter their respective local film and TV sectors as highly qualified industry professionals. Alongside their MTF qualification, the students also walk away with an equally illustrious qualification from the prestigious New York Film Academy of Visual and Performing Arts (NYFA).

Africa’s creative industries are custodians of the continent’s cultural heritage, and as Africa’s most-loved storyteller, MultiChoice has always put to use its burning desire to develop and invest in African talent through initiatives such as MTF. And like the previous cohort, the skills gained by the Class of 2020 once again shone through during their course.

The students completed an intensive 3-week online NYFA course on the production of micro-documentaries, PSAs and music videos and also worked with the United Nations on the global #PledgeToPause campaign, exposing the young creatives to global networks. In addition, MTF graduates are now part of the MTF alumni network and connected to industry professionals from across the continent through the MTF Portal-

The continued success of the MTF initiative since its start in 2018 is also rooted in its illustrious partnerships, namely with NYFA, the Henley Business School Africa, Pan-Atlantic University in Nigeria, Kenyatta University in Kenya and the University of Zambia in Zambia. MTF also has partnerships with internationally acclaimed organisations Dolby, Jasco Broadcast Solutions and Nihilent.

MTF’s partners have further contributed to the initiative by offering awards to this year’s graduates. The awards and lucky recipients are:

The NYFA 8-week scholarship, which goes to the top performing graduate per region.

This year’s recipients are; Abisola Aboaba (Nigeria), Daisy Masembe (Uganda) and Maira Tauacale (Mozambique).

An 8-week scriptwriting internship on an animation series from global consulting and solutions integration company Nihilent Technologies. The winners are; Julie Ako (Nigeria), Kefa Igilo (Tanzania) and Hilma Sheehama (Namibia).

Jasco Broadcast Solutions will provide one AVID media composer licence to the most-promising film video editor per region. The recipients are Gbenga Gomes (Nigeria), Isiko Abubaker (Uganda) and Abel Ngoma (Zambia). The AVID Pro Tools license for the most-promising sound engineer per region was awarded to Igho Arusi Avuirovarie (Nigeria), Maurice Muendo (Kenya) and Reijhaart Wolhuter (Namibia).

MultiChoice’s platforms will be giving students an amazing opportunity to work at M-Net local productions. Each winner will take part in a 4-week internship on M-Net productions equipping them with the skills they need to tell authentic and original African stories. Well done to Joshua Tsotso (Nigeria), Hanigun Kwenya (Kenya) and Masuzyo Mwale (Zambia).

“This is a proud moment for everyone involved in ensuring that the students became graduates. It’s also been fulfilling to see just how in-tune this next generation of African storytellers are with the importance of being multi-skilled and intuitive creatives,” Mrs Kooma continues “All this would not have been possible without the collaboration and commitment of our fantastic partners.”

The graduates from Zambia include; Abel Ngoma, Kaluba Mayowe, Masuzyo Mwale, Christine Mulemeli, Tasha Chitika, Edward Sakala and Cosmas Ng’andwe.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020 who are now alumni of the exceptional MTF Academy programme. The future of Africa’s creative industries looks bright!
