Malawi’s award winning video director Gift Sukez Sukali has said giving back to fans is key to enhancing artists’ skills in their respective fields.
Sukez said this in the past week, having surprised his fans with gifts and one on one motivational talks in the capital Lilongwe. He pointed out that achieving high status in a certain field makes most public figures to ignore their fans.
“These people are out there talking good things about us but most of us public figures give them a blind eye,” said Sukez
He described the move as productive on his part, as it will help him improve in as far as videography is concerned.
“Taking time to meet one or two of my fans will help me be a better videographer since I make videos for people like them, so am also learning by the end of the day,” he added.
The 2016 UMP award winner for best video director, through his brand, HD Plus creation, is known for making visuals that meet people’s desired standards. He is among the pioneers of Malawi’s high definition visuals, with a number of music videos and commercials under his name.
This year he has also been nominated in the same slot of the UMP awards. The recognition ceremony takes place this Saturday at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.
With a number of his video products circulating across local and international media platforms, Sukez maintains that no matter how big he will become, his fans shall always be an integral part of his career.
