Cape Town - M-Net has declined to comment on whether 1Magic (DStv channel 103) remains the official media sponsor of the now-dubious 2018 International Women in Media Conference.
Scheduled to take place in September at the Sandton Convention Centre, the women's conference derailed on Wednesday after Taraji P Henson and Halle Berry, who were announced as keynote speakers, denied involvement and slammed the organisers over "fake advertising."
Despite the recent negative press surrounding the event, the 1Magic channel logo continues to appear on 21st Century Group's marketing material for the International Women in Media Conference.
Nondumiso Mabece, head of publicity at M-Net for local entertainment channels, declined to comment on specific questions asked and instead referred media inquiries to the 21st Century Group.
She said that M-Net will not be issuing any statement on the conference.
The pay-TV broadcaster was asked how M-Net checked and verified the legitimacy of event and 1Magic's involvement in the conference.
