According to LIMA CEO, Tebogo DJ Cappuccino Maswanganyi, the event reached its objectives.

“This is one of the best shows in terms of running production smoothness and the quality of music that we received from the nominees. We are very excited, and I think artists are making progress in terms of covering powerful artists. LIMA is the brand, and we are expecting growth each and every year.

“We have given our all, all we need is the support from the public and private sectors. But we also appreciate the brands that are attaching themselves to our brand. This is the provincial show,” he said.

“As the province, we are making progress, and we just need to pull our hands and artists need to grab opportunities that sometimes they need to make very good decisions in terms of where they belong, and what advantages they get.”

He also thanked the Department of Sports, Arts, and Culture for mentoring the LIMA team and the artists.
