Portugal Hosts Zim Billboard Music Awards

It is that time again when artists and those involved in the entertainment industry gear up for award season.
To kick things off this summer will be the inaugural Zim Billboard Music Awards that are slated for Portugal on the 29th of October.
"Though the awards will be staged in Portugal, fans and music followers back home in Zimbabwe will still be able to follow proceedings through a LIVE Instagram broadcast", said Zim Billboard Music Awards representative, Tim Chanakira.

The Zim Billboard awards were founded by Wevey May, Lisa white, Tawanda Machakata and Troy white with the general idea being to not only promote Zimbabwean music but also change how the nation itself is and has been perceived in recent times.
"Our goal is to change how the world sees Zimbabwe. The Zim Billboard is different from other pages and brands because we focus only on local music and pop culture. I believe that as long as we support each other things will definitely change for the better", he said.

The ceremony promises to be a night to remember as there will be quite a number of home-grown talent gracing the event and also taking to the stage.
"The awards will be free for everyone to watch the likes of Buffalo Souljah, Mudiwa Hood, Trevor Dongo, Ninja Lipsy, Moira knight, Kikky BadAss, Olinda chapel, King Xender, Daddy Gee and 8L, who will all be PERFORMING", said Chanakira.

Artists will go head-to-head in the numerous categories that the organisers have availed and one of those to look forward to is one for the Video of The Year where the likes of Queen Vee (for her video to the hit 'nobody') and newcomer Shashl (for her track titled 'No more') among others, are set to battle it out.

Looking towards the future, the organisers said that a lot was instore in as far as the Zim Billboard Music Awars were concerned, Chanakira confirmed as much.
"Well, our goal is to have a radio show in Zimbabwe, having our own playlist of course and a television show. We are actually working on our first reality tv show so you guys need to be ready for that one", he said.

The award ceremony will of course be hosted by the beautiful and vivacious Michelle Wallace.
