Both being hit songs from top Ugandan artistes Heavy Weight Dr. Chameleone and BET Award winner Eddy Kenzo, ‘Wale Wale’ and ‘Zigido’ music videos are both nominated in the Kora Awards’ category of ‘Best Video Of the Year’.
These awards that will see winners in the different categories awarded, will take place at the Windhoek Country Club in Namibia on Sunday the 20th of March, 2016.
We tried to get in touch with Chameleone for a comment, but his known phone number couldn’t go through. We however got in touch with Eddy Kenzo’s manager Mr Cox and this is what he told Chano8. ” We shall urge the fans to vote and hopefully they will vote for the video though they haven’t disclosed how to vote”
In the same category where ‘Wale Wale’ and ‘Zigido’ videos are nominated, we also have ‘African Baby’ by Equatorial Guinea’s Cano, ‘Golibe’, ‘My Darlin’ and ‘God Win’ from Nigeria’s Flavour, Tiwa Savage and Korede Belo respectively.
Leaving ‘Zigido’ and ‘Wale Wale’ videos being in one category for the above awards alone, Chameleone and Eddy Kenzo are again nominated in another category of ‘Best Male Artiste East Africa’. A question that could sound in your mind is, ‘Is one of them taking both awards or are they going to share them?’ let’s watch this space.
