ESWATINI artists manager and radio personality Phila Khoshini has bagged a spot as a judge at the Royalty Soapie Awards.

This was revealed by Khoshini yesterday. The Royalty Soapie Awards were created to recognise and celebrate excellence in the South African soap opera industry. The awards recognise all major contributors to the South African daily TV drama entertainment industry, from an actor to make-up artist, costume designer, or producer.

This year’s awards are slated for Saturday at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Centre at OR Tambo in Johannesburg, South Africa. Khoshini said he was honoured to have this opportunity.

He said they would have chosen any South African, but they chose Liswati, who is known for sharing Swati songs and promoting them to be played on South African famous soapies. Phila’s career started as a 12-year- old TV presenter.

He later moved to other sections of TV and also worked as a cameraman, TX control and later producer of shows. He then took his craft to Durban, South Africa. He studied performing arts technology at Natal Tech (Now DUT), then enrolled a Diploma in Sound and Broadcast, Web design and Graphics and Marketing at Boston Media.

This added to his previously attained diploma in Electronics from Ethekwini College. His last education experience was with Mancosa, where he tried to master the art of Project management. His career span expands as wide as Channel Yemaswati TV, Playhouse theatre, SABC and Highways radio just to name a few.

He has had the privilege of working in front and behind the scenes on TV, radio, music and theatre.

Currently he runs a youth urban radio station known as The Underground in Durban and runs a multi-media company that does music ,events production, radio and TV broadcast facilities, marketing and PR.

With every project achievement, he always believes there is more room to grow hence his signature quote,"Askacedzi " loosely translated "We are not done ."
