“2011 Born n Bred Music Video Awards set for December 9th at NIPA
Zambia’s ‘Born n Bred’ music awards are set for December 9th at Nipa College, these are the ultimate music video awards on the Zambian music scene! Last year’s winners included hip-hop artist Slap D, gospel artist Tio, Copperbelt singer Dandy Krazy and R&B singer JK who scooped 5 awards!
Last year’s awards show was held at Mulungushi International Conference Center in Lusaka but this year’s ceremony will be held at NIPA College although I still don’t understand why the venue has changed – anyway all roads lead to NIPA on 9th December! The big question on everyone’s mind is who will scoop the big prize of the night “Best Music Video Of The Year”. 2011 has seen a huge improvement in music video production in Zambia, making this year probably one of the toughest years the awards have faced, with very stiff competition in all sectors.
‘Born n Bred’ awards are the brainchild of ZNBC radio and TV presenter Innocent Kalaluka aka ‘Smooth IK’. This is the 6th edition of the awards but so far not much information has leaked as to who has, and has not, been nominated. Soulchild can tell you word is that Petersen, JK, ZoneFam, Afunika, Mampi, TY2 and Kaufela, Oga Family and Roberto plus many more will be on hand to offer superb entertainment on the night.
The awards will be aired live on ZNBC TV from 9pm on December 9th.
