United Kingdom based Zimbabwean Taponeswa Mavunga, Director of Africa at Sony Music UK, has been announced as a finalist, among 39 other business people, in the Arts and Media Senior Leader category at this year’s Black British Business Awards. 

"I am honored to be shortlisted as a Senior Leader in my field alongside such inspiring company. Thank you Black British Business Awards for the recognition." Said Taponeswa Mavunga who oversees Sony Music’s amplification of UK signed artists across Africa, as well as supporting artists within Africa to develop relationships, identify opportunities and increase visibility within the UK.

Now in its eighth year, the awards highlight “exceptional business talent” across six industries: arts and media; consumer and luxury; start-ups; financial services; professional services; and STEM (science, tech, engineering and math).

 “Our finalists have delivered tremendous commercial value across sectors in volatile markets, where entrepreneurs in particular have been decimated. They have been strategic advisors to their companies and boards as global corporations are challenged by investors to address systemic racism. Despite the pandemic and social unrest, they are fiercely competitive, creative and commercially savvy. They are global in their outlook and ambition, and represent the very best of being British in a post-pandemic, post-Brexit Europe.”

Said Sophie Chandauka, Zimbabwe-born corporate finance lawyer, entrepreneur, co-founder and chair of the awards.

Winners of this year’s Black British Business Awards will be revealed during a virtual ceremony in October.
