Apart from unveiling of nominees, there will be performances by Malinga Mafia and Hazel Mak as well as Kings of the Night (VJ Ice, DJ Reubie, DJ Flame) DJ West and DJ Gedoh.
Meanwhile, nominations for the music category are now open to the general public.
UMP has also recently revealed banker and socialite Ben Wandawanda and renowned lawyer Jai Banda as this year’s recipients of the prestigious UMP Fashion Icon and Lifetime Achievement Awards respectively.
On his part, WAVES Marketing and Publicity Department Alfred Ochieng says, “WAVES preparation is one geared to make it a top night out/entertainment spot. A key point to making this happen is paying attention to our valued customers and patrons. We listen and improve and innovate and this event presents an opportunity to have our patrons, current and those that will come on the day experience WAVES. Improved services, facilities and indeed partnerships.”
Ochieng adds, “UMP Awards are one of the top Awards in Malawi and to partner with them is to make a statement that WAVES intends to be the best as well. UMP Nomination night will come with it some of the best talents in Malawi and to host them is an honour that WAVES will not take lightly and consequently, look to make it memorable.”
Commenting on the partnership, UMP Projects Manager Wisdom Phanga says, “We share common brand attributes. We are all Urban and fresh. The place is spacious and classy enough to host such an auspicious event. It’s also arguably the best party club in the city so UMP being the hottest Urban movement, the partnership came naturally.”
The charges at the nomination party are K5000 guys and K3000 for the ladies.
