NEO MOTSOENENG (article first published : 2003-04-10)

An article in the Daily News Tonight on April 1 notes that Durban songwriter Neo Motsoeneng has picked up a Sony recording contract in a national competition – despite not winning the event.

From Avoca Hills, Motsoeneng was awarded the contract in the recent annual Hansa Pilsner songwriting competition. He had been entering the competition since its inception and always qualified as a finalist. This dedication impressed the judges who decided to acknowledge his talent and passion.

The organisers also announced significant developments in the near future for the competition. “Improvements include a skills development programme to benefit more entrants, a consumer campaign to build greater appreciation for songwriters and more assistance for the winners,” Hansa Pilsener brand manager Beverley Ireland is reported to have said. “Ultimately, the entire entertainment industry and economy will benefit from a stronger songwriting capacity in the country.”
