Yesterday November 15, the 7th edition of the African Muzik Magazine Awards and Music Festival were held virtually in Texas. The AFRIMMA awards celebrate and recognize music of African origin from Lingala to Afro beats, Bongo to Funana, among many other genres of African music.
This year, 7 Ugandans were nominated for the awards; Eddy Kenzo for Best Male East Africa, Sheebah and Vinka for Best Female East Africa, Keko for Best female Rap Act, Sasha Vybz for Best Video director, Masaka Kids Africana for Best African dancer and James Onen for Radio/TV Person of the year.
Out of the 7, James Onen aka Fat Boy represented Uganda with the big win of the Radio personality award of the year.
This year, Fat Boy quit his job at Sanyu FM because of salary cuts and went on to start his own virtual radio station called Reckless Radio. This award comes as a major win for him since his big move from conventional radio.
