Speaking to the media, both Daniel and Tania said they did not expect to win prizes and were thankful to all the loyal fans. Both artists said they were working on …………….a new album to be released soon.

“I was not expecting to win any prizes today but on the whole I am satisfied with what I have been able to achieve in music, to please my fans. They are the ones voting for me and I thank them as they are the ones who respect Seychellois music. Given the lack of respect at times for local artists, the Cable Tune Awards is a good initiative for artists to gain some respect and recognition,” Daniel said.

As for Tania, she had this to day: “I was definitely not expecting to be named best female artist but the fans have voted. I thank them and I appreciate what they have done for me. The awards ceremony has been well organised, everything was nice, artists have been recognised for their efforts and I am very happy. It’s a ten over ten.”

The Cable Tune awards ceremony has been a long-standing tradition by the telecommunication service provider to recognise and honour the brightest local stars of the music industry. It is the fans who vote for the best awardees by sending their favourite corresponding artist’s code to 9688.

Cable Tunes is a platform that offers local artists and producers an opportunity to expose their visions and creativity while CWS customers and the whole community get to enjoy their good music. The musical award was first introduced under the umbrella of #Siportartislokal in 2009. This years’ ceremony was special as it coincided with CWS’ 130th anniversary celebration.

Carinne Houareau, public relations and events executive at CWS, said the telecommunication company was very satisfied with the show, the performance and the turnout.

“Faced with the unprecedented December 7 disasters and the unavoidable postponement of our Cable Tunes Awards event, we want to recognise the patience and understanding of all partners, guests, and attendees who have been truly remarkable and understanding. Your unwavering support and commitment have not gone unnoticed, and we are sincerely thankful for the resilience and positive spirit demonstrated to make this event another success,” Ms Houareau stated.

To note Auspicious, Highness and Sophie Morgan were not present to collect their prizes. The award ceremony which saw some fantastic live performances by various artists ended with an after party and disco until early Sunday morning.
