Award inspires Gogo Mlewa 2021 production. By Singayazi Kaminjolo

Image taken from The Nation On Christmas Day an emotional Gogo Mlewa and her grandson entered the dim lights of Golden Peacock Hotel in Lilongwe and walked the red carpet where she received an Honorary Innovative Award.

Gogo Mlewa did not know that people recognised her as she was wheeled into the glittering hall while the audience shouted her name. She turned to her grandson and asked him: “How do these people know us?”

When he presented her the prize, Malawi Filmmakers Association president Isaiah Mkandawire did not hide the fact that he was honoured to meet her.

In October the main character, Agogo, suffered a health scare which disrupted the Gogo Mlewa project as she was admitted to the hospital.

But following the award, Gogo Mlewa is back with more hilarious educative videos tackling trending issues like rape and defilement incidents and of course Covid-19.
