"On the back of a tough but very successful award-winning year, I am immensely grateful to be able to work with — and lead — such an amazing, passionate group of people who continually strive to pioneer and do better," says Kgaugelo Maphai, managing director of The MediaShop Johannesburg.

"2020 will see our agency evolve into a fully integrated marketing and communications agency, and we're extremely excited about the future ahead," adds Maphai. According to Adfocus 2019, The MediaShop's increase in billings, new account wins and client retention were a few factors that clinched the deal.

Throughout 2019, the agency has received accolades at the MOST Awards, Bookmarks, AMASA and the Assegai Awards. The agency concludes that this affirms its position as a leading media agency in South Africa.
