FOLLOWING at least three Swazi entertainers shining on international ground the Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs David Ngcamphala has applauded the arts industry.

The minister affirmed that the industry was definitely in line with vision 2022.

The minister was speaking after he had invited the best country music duo Dusty and Stones who won the title in Texas last week and Phiwayinkhosi Tshangela who won the Miss Africa beauty pageant to his offices.

The minister  mentioned that  indeed the art industry is taking shape towards the King’s Vision 2022  and this is shown by the achievements  and victories that are bought back home by the artists and beauty queens.

 “We would like to hail these kind of achievements on behalf of the government as this portrays the country well internationally.

“This kind of achievements mean the country is indeed on course towards reaching the first world status. As we can see these are different achievements from beauty queens, artists and designers.  

“We are in line with the vision 2022,” said the minister when congratulating the artists and the beauty queen.


 The minister urged companies to not hesitate but support such initiatives as the country is heading towards vision 2022. Ngcamphalala also applauded the work that is done by the Swaziland National Council of Arts and Culture in promoting the arts in the country.

 During the award presentation,  SNCAC CEO Stanley Dlamini also   introduced Miss Swaziland  Second princess Baby Mthimkhulu who will be representing the  country in Nigeria for Miss University Africa; where all  African countries will be taking part. It is also worth noting that it is a non-bikini beauty pageant. Mthimkhulu will be leaving the country on Friday.

Dlamini also introduced designer Tenele Tfwala, who will also be representing the country in Ivory Coast during the Fashion week.
