On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Dorothy Masuka about receiving her Arts & Culture Trust Lifetime Achievement Award.
Dorothy Masuka – Arts & Culture Trust Lifetime Achievement Award (MUSIC).
This year ACT celebrates its twentieth anniversary of the Awards under the banner ‘celebrating South African Legends’. The ImpACT Award was announced alongside the interviews with the Lifetime Achievement Winners. Guests were treated to an evening of glitz, glamour and inspiring stories by South African arts and culture icons.
Opening the evening, the stunning Lira and her band performed to a room packed with members of the arts and culture industry, government officials, Embassy representatives and the Minister in the Presidency Responsible for Women, Ms Susan Shabangu, before Bridget Masinga, the ever-classy radio host from Kaya FM, took to the stage to welcome all present and kick off the award proceedings.
The Lifetime Achievement Awards are given to people who have consistently contributed to, sustained, grown and defined the South African arts and culture sector over the course of their lives. Many have faced incredible personal, financial and political hardship to carry out the work that they do and ACT is proud to have the opportunity to acknowledge the significant contributions that these people have made.
