Tay Grin, who won the prestigious Beffta Award as Best International African Act in 2014, has been placed on position 82.

“I have been chosen as one of 100 influential people in the world. It’s a UK publication and I have been placed at  82. A great way to start off the year indeed, all glory be to God,” the singer wrote on his Facebook Timeline.

The ‘2 by 2,’ star who is also popularly known as Nyau King, says the development has come at a right time as he still celebrates the success of the year 2014 which he described as incredible.

Grin says his naming should be celebrated not only by himself but also Malawi as a whole.

Other high profile personalities on the list are Simon Cowell, Formula One champion Lewi s Hamilton, US First Lady Michelle Obama, Lord Alan Sugar, Hillary Clinton, Sir Trevor Mc Donald and South Africa’s singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka. The first position went to Errol Douglas.

Hub magazine shortlists individuals who are making great and positive changes in their career, profession, community and world at large.

Meanwhile, Nyasa Times understands that, Tay Grin is in the middle of launching a new foundation to empower the people of Malawi to rise above poverty.

“With this great honour comes great responsibilities. I would like to use this opportunity to influence change for my people,” said Tay Grin.

The foundation which is due to be launched shortly will be named Tay Grin Community Empowerment Foundation.

@ Peter mathanyula wakuba, I agree with that Moses Dossi was once nominated but ended at Phekani’s Chitawira superrete as a store boy. Joyce Banda also got the nomination prior to the elections with the aim of boosting her chances of winning but it never worked. So those people giving him that award are mad people. Anthu openga amenewa apanga bwanji????
