Groove Awards pushed to Saturday
The 10th edition of Groove Awards has been pushed to Saturday over what the organisers claimed to be “unavoidable circumstances”.
The awards were scheduled to be held on Monday.
“We would like to apologize to all Kenyans and the gospel industry at large for the inconvenience caused by this unavoidable event.
“My team and I are working hard to ensure that the event takes place next week. Voting will be extended till 5th May 2015. All tickets will remain valid for the new date.” said Kevin Mulei, founder of Groove Awards.
The event will mark the end of the Groove Tours with Safaricom that were preceded by regional events in Kakamega, Eldoret, Nakuru, Karatina and Machakos.
The event awards artistes in 33 different categories, honoring gospel musicians, DJs, producers, radio and television gospel shows that have been voted for by members of the public.
After the awards, there will be celebratory tours with performances set to be staged in different regions countrywide that will end on New Year’s Eve at the iconic Groove Party in Nairobi.
Male Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year and Album of the Year are some of the hotly contested categories.
