Alliance Française of Lusaka awards young talents K15,000.

Thandiwe Yamba, 13, and 22 years old Musenga Katongo are among five talents that emerged winners at the first Alliance Française of Lusaka Talent Show, hosted on the November 30th.

With each winner taking home K3,000 as prize money, the 2019 Talent Show set out to find the best from five categories that included Art, Music, Spoken Word, Dance and Theatre.

We received 238 applications from a public call out, placed on our Facebook page, and interestingly 158 of these were for the music category. It wasn’t an easy task because there is some great talent out there and videos sent in notably made us realize that. But we still had to trim the list down to something manageable, so we called up 70 people for auditions, Bright Nyirenda said.

In that matter, the 2019 Talent Show” is a new concept that must be repeated next year in a bigger/better way, Muniglia said.
