Cindy Scoops ‘Best Female East Africa’ In AFRIMA

Our own dance hall queen Cinderella Sanyu aka Cindy won the award for ‘Best female East Africa’ in the 3rd edition of the prestigious All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA). The awards which happened live in Lagos at the Convention Center Ekom Hotels & Suites were meant to promote distinct African music and culture worldwide as it has got a wide fan base. Singer and songwriter Unique won the ‘Songwriter of the Year’ Award while Eddy Kenzo’s “Mbilo Mbilo – Remix” ft Nigeria’s Niniola won the award for ‘Best Collaboration.
