Then, Ms. Nzuzi from the DRC who is also a famous  presenter on a Romanian TV Channel, delivered a persuasive message dedicated to the important role played by African women for the development of the society, mentioning names such as  Winnie Mandela and Miriam Makeba, who was South Africa’s First Lady of song and, who deserved, according to Ms. Nzuzi, the title of Mama Africa. Finally, Ms Nzuzi sang, a wonderful song of Ms. Makeba, to resounding applause.
