A few years back Zimdancehall wasn’t seen as much of a genre but something to keep the unemployed youth occupied. This has changed over the years as we now see a few of our own being recognized by huge local awards judges such as NAMA where Winky D managed to scoop two of the gongs and ZIMA where Zimdancehall maged to scoop two, one for Winky D and another for Killer T.

Killer T walked away with the Best Dancehall Music for Ngoma Ndaimba and Winky D took the Song of the Year award for Disappear. The Zimbabwe Music Awards (Zima) hosted at the HICC last night saw Jah Prayzah walking away with the most awards, four in total.

The two are not new to the battle as they have been nominated again this year at the National Arts Merit Awards ceremony which is taking place tomorrow at 7Arts Theatre.

Speaking during a press conference held at the Joina City, show organiser Phineas Mushayi said preparations are at advanced stage.
