This is the first time since its launch in 2013 that this year’s awards will not take place.
The Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards, also known as ASFAs, are the annual Continental Fashion Awards presented in Uganda, excelling in the fashion industry in Uganda and Africa.
In a joint statement, Brian Ahumuza, the founder and Aly Allibhai from Talent Africa Group said:
”Our team did have a sit-down, and we did weigh our options, in as far as embracing the new normal goes. But we have never envisioned the ASFAs being a virtually produced show, as this ruins the idea and concept on which the ASFAs started.”
”People coming together, in one room, with all the oomph, flair and glam is what has made the ASFAs what they are today. So, after much consideration, putting into account the safety of our fans and guests, and also the need to give you a show that will be as remarkable and unforgettable like the last 8 years, we have made the tough decision to postpone the event to 2021.”
”This year and the year to come will be maximized in planning, together with our partners at Talent Africa Group, to ensure that we deliver a show that will be the best you have ever experienced.”
”To our loyal fans and the supporters of the #ASFAS, we do apologize for any inconveniences this may cause, but you can be sure to experience the ASFAs like never before, come 2021! Thank you for your unwavering support in the last 8 years, and get those outfits and the flair ready.”
