This was unveiled today, Thursday, at a fans and press conference which was held at The Hub Oasis Mall by the Awards Spokesperson, Izak Daniel Katende after carrying out a regional tour in which the nominees were got.

The room, in which the event was held, was packed to capacity by both journalists and fans of the musicians.
However, when the fans and the press were given a chance to ask questions, they almost fought amongst themselves over the artistes who had been nominated in categories that they (fans) though they (musicians) didn’t belong to.
“This category of Best On Stage Performer, I see Tuff B’s name, on which stage does he perform?” asked Mark, a Leone Island die-hard attracting laughter form the people in the room.
“To me, Coco Finger or Gravity would have occupied this slot,” he added.
This was also emphasised by Rwasama, a journalist, saying that “we have never seen him perform anywhere, how did he get on this list?”
But this didn’t go well with the Gagamel fans, who told them not to vote for Tuff B if they think he is not a good stage performer.
The organiser of the show was quick to react saying “the theme of this year’s award is The Fans Decide and so the nomination papers were sent to fans and Tuff B was among the highly nominated”.
“So if you didn’t nominate your Gravity Omuttujju or Coco Finger, you shouldn’t blame us,” he added.
