Zimpapers Group chief marketing officer Mr Tapiwa Mandimutsira applauded all the sponsors.

“A big thank you to all our sponsors for their unwavering support, The Sunday Mail Editor Mabasa Sasa represented here by Assistant Editor Mrs Wendy Nyakurerwa-Matimbe and the marketing department for making this event a success.

“The Sunday Mail is our biggest family newspaper, and family building is one of our major concerns, which is the reason why we have made this an annual event. Congratulations to the winners of this year’s competition,” said Mr Mandimutsira.

While it has brought different surprises each year, capturing the attention of many through top-notch entertainment, this year it was ignited by an explosive musical show by Afro-fusion artiste Mbeu, born Ashton Nyahora. He brought ecstasy to the event as he played Dr Oliver Mtukudzi’s popular hits of the ’90s, other cover versions and his own compositions from his forthcoming album, “Hatizvimire”.
