BULAWAYO’s POY who recently released his 13-track offering titled, Short Cuts to Heaven, continues to shine as he has been nominated in five categories for this year’s Zim Hip Hop Awards.

POY has been nominated for Best Male Artiste, Best collaboration for his song Get out of the way featuring Spits Loui, Best Album for Short cuts to Heaven, Best video of the year for his Higher song and People’s Choice. Mudiwa has also been nominated in five categories – Best Gospel act, People’s Choice, Best Hip hop hustle, Video of the year for his track Slaying and Best Male Artiste.

Mudiwa and POY are closely followed by Mike Kata who was nominated for Best Hip-Hop Hustle, Best local Brand for his fashion label Zvanhuwa and Best collaboration for his hit track Zunguza remix.

Neck to neck with Mike Kata is Tehn Diamond who also got nominated for Song of the year for his track No stress, Video of the year for No stress, Best Collaboration and Best male artiste.

The awards will be held on December 9 for the first time in Bulawayo with the city’s artistes, Floppy X, Guluva 7 and Naboth Rizla also nominated. Floppy X has been nominated for Best newcomer and People’s choice while Guluva 7’s Ngena Ka1 track has landed him two nominations for Song of the Year and Best verse.

Naboth Rizla has been nominated three times for Best Hip Hop Hustle, Best Promoter and Best Media under the TV category for his Hip Hop 263 show.

Chronicle scribe, Bongani Ndlovu, has been nominated in the Best Print Journalist category.

POY, who is behind the popular Mabhomba track, said he was ecstatic. “I’m honoured because this has proven that I’m still relevant in the hip hop music industry. I’m confident that I’ll win all the awards that I’ve been nominated for as I want them to remain in the City of Kings and Queens,” said the wordsmith.

Founder and organiser of the Zim Hip Hop Awards, Beefy Harrison, said: “For all the 24 categories, the judges will choose the winners based on their performance, relevance and the impact their music had this year, except for the People’s Choice award where people will vote for their favourite artiste.”
