    Inaugural Bulawayo Arts Awards 2017

    The Bulawayo Arts Awards 2017 (BAA) are on this Friday June 30th at Large City Hall in Bulawayo.

    The red carpet event will be hosted by former ZiFM Stereo presenter Morris Touch, Bathabile and Comrade Phil.

    The nominees for the inaugural Bulawayo Arts Awards were announced on the 3rd of June 2017 at Glen Lodge in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

    South African recording artist, DJ, record producer and businessman Oskido is among the big names on the nominees list for Outstanding Ambassador Based in South Africa.

    Our ZiFM Stereo News correspondent in Bulawayo met up with one of the sponsors supporting the event and they acknowledged that the core purpose of the awards is to recognise and honour artists in the region.

    “For a long time Bulawayo has been said to be the arts and cultural hub in the country but we have never honoured our own hence the need for these awards.”
