MBC please try to avoid to buy cheap popularity by orgnising such a function which you claim to be of national significance at the Sate house. Next time please organise it a neutral venue like the hotel, otherwise it will lose its meaning. MBC had Entertainers of the year before, but at no time the programme was organised at State house. The president goes to hotels when invited. State house should be kept free of noise. The same applies with Zokonda Amayi zanuzo, do it somewhere in town.
