The Saftas also launched its new look and dream-inspired theme, Imagine. Zama Mkosi, CEO of the foundation said, “We consider ourselves the backbone of the Saftas, and the decision to imbue a new sense of progress and meaning to the identity affords us another opportunity to demonstrate our support.

“As we celebrate a decade of the Saftas, it was a fitting time to redefine the event and all the elements that make it a noteworthy annual gathering.”

Mkosi explained that the Saftas were not a popularity contest but rather a platform to honour excellence across the industry.
