“Teso Entertainment Awards remains one of Teso’s most dynamic organizations, a brand whose innovations and initiatives are to recognize, promote and Celebrate Teso’s Finest talent and we are also proud to keep growing from strength-to-strength as we have learnt a lot over time, starting from the first awards event, which was held in 2018.” He added.
