Revealing that the award is his first international recognition, Wirtz proudly noted that it is a rare but welcome return to the spotlight to receive such a prestigious award.

“It’s probably the hit Bal Dan Penpen which has earned me this prominent award,” joked Wirtz who admitted that this “award is an encouraging force to my long deserving career”.

“I think it is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It’s surely an honour for me and Seychelles,” said Wirtz.
