1.2 LYD Awards started as a talent show in 2014. The youth expressed extreme excitement about the show. We were so humbled the way they expressed their appreciation with the support we gave them.
1.3 In 2015 we then decided to honour them with awards as to encourage them to continue with their different talents planted in them. Talent does not need any qualification but passion and willingness to work hard towards achieving what you believe in. We all get encouraged when we are acknowledged no matter what level we are on. We believe that the amazing talents and passion we observed in the Youth of South Africa can go as far as putting food on the table for their families.
