This Saturday, the Rising Star Awards will be officially launched. The awards launch is set for 7th June at Club Venom in Kabalagala. It will kick off at 9:00pm with the Grand finale set for September 2014 at Wonder World Kansanga.
The Awards according to the organisers are to appreciate both established; rising, upcoming, breakthrough and fallen stars based on categories they deem fit for both existing and more importantly the upcoming artists.
The organisers are also calling upon the public to join in the launch and participate in the subsequent activities leading to the main awards gala slated for September. This is what they posted on their Facebook page.
