PORTUGAL, you were never ready.

Symphony won the AfriMusic Song Contest competition for her song ‘ Sengikhona’  last month  and this lead her scooping the trip to Portugal tonight.

Yesterday  the Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs David Ngcamphalala hosted an official send off for Symphony  at  the Ministry of Sports, Culture and  Youth Affairs  conference  room which was attended by Swaziland National Council of Arts and Culture (SNCAC) CEO Stanley Dlamini, Symphony’s Manager Buyile Cele and media representatives.

 The minister congratulated the singer and  advised her to show some respect  as the country is well known for  its reverence. The minister mentioned that Symphony’s trip to Portugal will also boost  tourism in the country as she will be showcasing the culture of Eswatini.

“As the government of Eswatini, we are very pleased to see our very own artists spreading their wings and being internationally recognised. This shows growth not only in the industry but to the country as a whole,” briefly said the minister.
