Zimdancehall awards 2014 nominees out


ORGANISERS of the Zimdancehall Awards on Saturday released the names of the 2014 nominees and online voting via social networks Twitter and Facebook has already started.


At the inaugural awards that were held at Zimbabwe College of Music in the capital in March this year, Winky D emerged the biggest winner on the night, bagging four accolades out of five nominations.

This time, the Bhachi neJean singer is facing stiff competition from Mbare-based chanter Seh Calaz as the duo have been nominated in seven categories.
Both musicians will square off in the Best Male Artiste of the Year, Best Song of the Year, Best Social Song of the Year, Best Collaboration of the Year, Best Dressed Artist categories.

However, Winky D has been nominated in three categories, Best Vocalist of the Year, Achievement Award and Best Stage Performer categories which Seh Calaz has missed out.

Seh Calaz was nominated in the Most Outstanding Artiste of the Year category in which Winky D missed out as well.
