The youngsters decided and made their choices for their favourite artistes and personalities in the entertainment industry for the year. Ykee Benda and Sheebah Karungi carried their form from last year into 2017 where they dominated the awards which are organised by Buzz Events, sponsored by Mountain Dew and decided by the teens.

Although both artistes were missing at the awards ceremony that took place on Saturday 13th at UMA show grounds in Lugogo, they were well represented and cheered as members from their respective camps walked to the stage to receive the awards. YKee Benda is in Nairobi for Coke studio.  

Just like in previous editions, most of the big name artistes were missing on the nomination list and mostly dancehall artistes dominated the awards with the teens preferring high tempo dancehall and ragga songs to traditional ‘Kidandali’ and low tempo songs and genres.

With gates opening as early as 10 am, the teens started congregating early enough to catch the vibes and excitement and in small groups, they streamed in and filled the hall by midday. Dressed in all kinds of weird attire strutting their stuff on the green carpet.

With several performances keeping the teens entertained, it was YKee Benda popular for songs like ‘Farmer’ (Ft Sheeba), ‘Muna Kampala’, ‘Hold Me’ and ‘Malaika’ in the end walked away with three accolades – Teeniez Male Artist, Teeniez Breakthrough Artist and Teeniez Best Song Writer while Sheebah took home Teeniez Female Artist and Teeniez Dancehall artist.
