JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – The Royalty Soapie Awards is excited to announce its strategic participation with SA Tourism, the official national marketing agency of the South African government, with the goal of promoting Tourism in South Africa both locally and globally. This participation will not only enhance the additional Pan African Award category in the royalty soapie awards but promote South Africa’s scenic beauty and the diversity of talent in various soapies producing excellent work we interact with on our screens daily.

This year’s prestigious awards are special as they mark a momentous 6th-year milestone celebration in an industry that showcases and emphasises the importance of storytelling in our lives.

Winnie Ntshaba, founder and CEO of the awards says, “We are proud to celebrate the diverse calibre of nominations from across the continent. Our strategic collaboration with South African Tourism is significant as it buoys our local talent and elevates them on the international stage. The soapies are filmed locally showcasing South Africa’s beautiful landscapes, infrastructure, and talent.

She adds, ” The sixth-year milestone has been a fantastic journey, a dream coming to fruition. As an actress, I am super excited about a new relationship that will bring inclusion of the Pan African Actors. A platform where we celebrate the hard work of individuals behind the soapie industry across Africa.”

The Royalty Soapie Awards set forth the power of entertainment not only by recognizing and celebrating excellence in the South African Daily TV Drama Entertainment Industry but offering a chance for soapie lovers the opportunity to also experience the celebrations and the red carpet moments. Three lucky public voters had a chance to rub shoulders with the who’s who’s of the entertainment industry and loved the red-carpet experience at the awards ceremony that took place on the 11th of March 2023 at The Galleria, M1 Place, 10 Eastern Service Kramerville.
