Much as many people have given up on awards, the categories will always raise a public vote in determining who the best is especially when it comes to highly recognizable awards such as MTV, Kora and BEFFTA among others.
Well, speaking about Black Entertainment Film Fashion Television and Arts (BEFFTA) awards, quite a number of Ugandans have been nominated but the interesting category is the Best International African Act.
In that category, our very own Edirisa Musuza aka Eddy Kenzo has been nominated alongside Ali Kiba(Tanzania), Diamond Platinumz(Tanzania), Sauti Sol(Kenya), WizKid(Nigeria), Patoranking (Nigeria), Kiss Daniel (Nigeria), Tekno(Nigeria), Timi Dakolo(Nigeria) and Fuse ODJ(Ghana).
If you ask us, this is the tightest category as all the nine artistes stand a chance of taking it home although Nigerians seem to have a bigger chance of walking away with it.
However, Eddy Kenzo can surprise them all because he is lately regarded a darling of many people in Africa where he has performed at packed concerts in different parts of Africa. However, the artistes to really watch out for are Diamond Platinumz, WizKid and Sauti Sol for their recent form.
BEFFTA awards were founded by Pauline Long looking to honour outstanding achievements and contributions in showbiz and entertainment in the black and ethnic communities in the UK, USA, Africa, Caribbean, Canada and globally.
