Business man cum tycoon Jack Pemba, the CEO and President of Pemba Sports Africa is the latest to join the list as a premium sponsor.
The Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards are delighted to announce that Jack Pemba, under the flagship of his company, Pemba Sports Africa has sponsored the ASFA’s 2017 with 100M. Speaking shortly after signing the sponsorship agreement, Jack Pemba gleefully opined that the ASFA’s are, but a historical statement that should be celebrated across Africa.
“The ASFA’s are more than just a continental fashion awards show. They are an epic relay of the direction award ceremonies and fashion shows in Africa should be taking. The ASFA’s are the future that every brand should embrace. Companies should allocate a sponsorship budget for the ASFA’s the way they do when overhauling their technological infrastructure. The ASFA’s should be part of your plan as a brand with international prospects. This, because the ceremony grows in wild proportions every other year, leaping to greater heights with every stroke of execution from the ASFA team. That worth is why we sponsored the ceremony. We want to associate with a ceremony that represents affluence, high-end fashion and cutting-edge innovation. We are thus honoured to be part of the biggest fashion show on the continent,” stated a joyous Jack Pemba.
