Everybody loves a surprise, and this award season, there wouldn’t be any surprises if there weren’t predictions. Since the Uganda Entertainment awards night are less than a fortnight away, it is just the right time to speculate and altercate about who will win what category.
Here is EagleOnline’s prediction on selected categories of interest;
Artist of the Year
The nominees are; Sheebah Karungi,Eddy Kenzo and Bebe Cool.
All three have been on the scene this past year. While Eddy Kenzo won Best New International artist in 2015 BET Awards, Bebe Cool’s Love you everyday was nominated in Mtv Africa Awards (MAMA). However, Sheeba has had hit after hit including Nkwatako, Ndiwanjawulo, Siri Zari and others, therefore this Zeros down to her, Sheeba Karungi
Best Male Artist
The nominees are; Eddy Kenzo, Radio & Weasel, David Lutalo, A Pass
He might not be winning Artist of the year but Eddy Kenzo has people hyping over his songs. While the rest cannot be disregarded either, Kenzo is still the most probable winner in this category.
Best Female Artist
The nominees are; Rema Namakula, Sheebah Karungi, Stecia Mayanja, Mary Bata
For the most obvious reason that she has had the most hits in this category, Sheeba is taking this one too.
Best Breakthrough Artiste
The nominees are; Winnie Nwagi, Carol Nantongo, Nutty Neithan, Ryddim Galz
People are going crazy over her curvy body and Musawo is still hitting all over the country. Winnie Nwagi has got this covered.
Video of the Year
The nominees are; Nkwatako by Sheebah Karungi, Soraye by Eddy Kenzo, African Gal by Bebe Cool, Njogereza by Navio, Kyadaaki by Iryn Namubiru
Nkwatako is winning this. Let’s be honest, there is a difference between a good quality video and a video that appeals to a watcher and that is Sheeba Karungi.
The nominees are; Science by King Saha ft Winnie Nwagi, Same Way by Geosteady ft Lydia Jazmine, Royal Eddy Kenzo ft Patoranking, Friendly Match by Ziza Bafana ft Zanie Brown
Science takes this. This jam is loved from a boba-boda stage to a government official’s house.
Song of the Year
The nominees are; Musawo by Winnie Nwagi, Alintwala by Stecia Mayanja, Same way by Geosteady ft Jazmine, Mu Bbara by Daxx Kartel, My Lover by Mary Bata
This is a close one! Though Daxx Kartel might have taken this had it been 4 months earlier, with Winnie’s Musawo strategically hitting during the award season, Winnie Nwagi could take this award. I still wouldn’t be surprised though if Daxx Kartel claimed it.
The nominees are; Quela Band, Golden Band, Cream Production
This group made up of former Eagle’s Production gurus has never lost it and with new fresh blood like Carol Nantongo taking over the music scene, surely it’s only fair to say Golden band is taking this one.
Best All Round Entertainment Personality
The nominees are; Bobi Wine, Salvado Idringi, Andrew Benon Kibuuka, Mariam Ndagire.
Taking into account a personality that appeals to all; young, old, poor and rich, Bobi Wine is definitely taking this one.
Best TV Station
The nominees are; NTV, Bukedde TV, Urban TV, Channel 44
Enjoyed by every age group and getting even those claiming too much swag watching Agataliiko Nfuufu, Bukedde TV is in the thing.
- Best Radio Station
The nominees are; Galaxy FM, CBC FM, Power FM, Capital FM, Sanyu FM
This new comer is hitting the scene right and some of these old fellas, though competitive could be in for a surprise when Galaxy FM takes it.
