The second edition of Zzina awards takes place this evening at Theatre La Bonita.
The 17-category awards organised by Galaxy FM seeks to reward outstanding individuals for their tremendous contribution to the entertainment industry.
The categories include concert of the year, luga-flow artiste of the year, music group of the year and comedian of the year, among others. Bebe Cool, Cindy, Bobi Wine, Ziza Bafana and Gravity will face off for the stage performance award.
The best music group category will have last year’s winners Goodlyfe taking on Team no sleep, Firebase, Gagamel and Leone Island. The duo of Radio and Weasel took home four awards at last year’s edition.
Anne Kansiime is likely to win the comedians’ category to beat last year’s winners, Afande Kerekere and Alex Muhangi, who has put up a spirited online campaign this year. Go Down Low (Pallaso and Sheebah) Neera Neera (Radio) and Sitya Loss (Eddy Kenzo) will be the songs to watch.
The Goodlyfe duo and Chameleone, who won artiste of the year, were not in attendance last year. It is hoped the big names in the music and entertainment industry will honour this year’s edition with their presence.
Voting has been going on on the social media and SMS platforms. The winner of legend of the year will be decided by the select committee of the awards. The red-carpet event kicks off at 6pm and the action is expected to go on until late.
