MultiChoice has once again walked away with top honours in the Topco Oliver Empowerment Awards, the premier awards for leadership and innovation in empowerment and transformation.

MultiChoice received three awards:

  • Top Empowered Company: Enterprise and Supplier Development Award – for companies that have accelerated the development, sustainability and ultimately, financial independence of black-owned businesses specifically small and emerging businesses.
  • Top Empowered Company: ICT – for the company whose technology based innovation has improved productivity, price, quality, effectiveness and efficiencies that enhance the competitiveness in the South African economy.
  • Top Empowered Company: Support Services – which recognises exemplary empowerment achievements within interrelated fields.


Topco Oliver Empowerment awards companies and individuals for their contribution and commitment to empowerment in South Africa. Implementation of strategic B-BBEE policies, annual revenue, implementation of effective internal B-BBEE measurement mechanics and other areas of business are all taken into consideration in the selection of the winners of the respective categories.


“It’s a true honour to be recognised among those who make a real difference in the transformation of our country. I am very proud of the work we do to make a real and lasting contribution to South Africa. Thank you for the recognition of our work for the third year running,” said Calvo Mawela, CEO for MultiChoice South Africa.
