The organisers of the annual Music Malawi (MUMA) Awards, MediaCorp Limited and
Trocadero Consulting in partnership with the Musicians Union of Malawi (MUM) are
pleased to unveil Television personality Geoffrey ‘Mr Splash’ Kapusa as the host of the
Second Edition of the Awards. The awards ceremony will be held at the Bingu
International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe on Friday, February 27, 2015.
Kapusa is the senior producer at Malawi Broadcasting Corporation Television and show
host of the popular musical show Music Splash which for years has become the main
television outlet of Malawi’s popular local music.
The organisers believe that with Mr Splash hosting this magnificent event, it would bring
the glamour and dynamism that the awards deserve. This is also to recognise the efforts
Kapusa has put in promoting and developing Malawi music through the years that he has
been hosting Music Splash.
This edition of the Awards has fifteen (15) categories which are open for voting covering
different genre and artists/groups that have made an impact on the local music scene in
the 2014 season and also has a special Life Time Achiever accolade that would be
bestowed on Michael Fredrick Paul Sauka, the composer of the country’s National
Anthem. Sauka will be awarded posthumously and it is expected that his widow Beatrice
Sauka will receive the award on behalf of this son of Malawi.
The voting started at 06.00 hours on Thursday February 12, 2015. Note: This is for Airtel
