The 2019 prestigious HiPipo Music Awards nominees have been unveiled, and as always, there are plenty of surprises in the big six categories and more than a few tight races that should prove almost impossible to win.

The awards have also introduced a brand new exciting Africa’s Number 1 category! While announcing the nominees, Innocent Kawooya, CEO HiPipo noted that “The 8th edition of the prestigious HiPipo Music Awards comes with a theme ‘#WeTheBest’ and steps further to celebrate Africa’s Crème de La Crème with Africa’s Number 1 Award Category.”

The five most-nominated people at the eighth annual awards are Sheebah with seventeen noms, Diamond Platnumz with eleven, Twelve for Fik Fameica, Sauti Sol with eight and David Lutalo coming out with seven.

While all nominees are winners and are greatly celebrated, the gala event final winner is one that accumulates the highest number of votes as per the voting criteria which will be strengthened with the Music Assembly.

The Music Assembly will have a vote that will contribute 30 percent to eight categories among which will be Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year while the rest of the categories as always will be fully decided by the fans vote.

The Awards will take place on March 16 at Kampala Serena Hotel.
