Leading urban radio station Star FM has announced the launch of the Star FM Music Awards, scheduled to be held on the 25th of January 2019.
Speaking from Star FM yesterday, the Zimpapers Radio Broadcasting Division General Manager, Mr Comfort Mbofana, said the awards were a reflection of how the station revers the role of music (and musicians) in the society.
“We have had a plan to have the awards over the years. We feel that we need to honour our musicians and the contribution that they have made to shaping Zimbabwe. We hope this small act of recognising what they have done will, in turn, catapult them into the international arena.” Mbofana said.
The awards mirror the processes and criteria of regional awards like the Metro FM Music Awards and plans have advanced considerably. The awards primarily recognise music that has featured on the station and was played between January the 1st 2018 and 9th of November 2018.
Musicians and interested parties are encouraged to visit the awards website www.starfmmusicawards.co.zw and register.
