The Mbokodo Awards recognize this strength as they pay homage to the talents of these outstanding women, women who remember our past and embrace our future, women who have shaped and upifted South Africa’s arts and culture.

The inaugural Mbokodo Awards ceremony took place on 30 November 2012 in Soweto and saw Gadija Gamieldien, CEO of 36Boutiques.com, being awarded for Fashion Innovation.

“Being a recipient of a nomination in the Mbokodo Awards was a huge surprise, to have then gone on to win the award is an honour and I feel privileged to be recognised. The nominations in all the categories are women of outstanding talent, who are making an impact in their respective industries. Awards like Mbokodo will grow from strength to strength as more women play a pivotal role in reshaping arts and culture in South Africa.” Says Gamieldien, only one of the women whose craft, skill and tenacity was celebrated on the night.

The Mbokodo Awards celebrate South African women who have shown excellence in the fields of Arts and Culture. Once a year, they will be recognised for their strength as the awards pay homage to the talents of these outstanding women, women who remember our past and embrace our future, women who have shaped and uplifted South Africa’s arts and culture.
