POY To Boycott Zim Hip Hop Awards
Bulawayo hip hop star will boycott this year’s Zimbabwe Hip Hop Awards, he has revealed.
POY is nominated for the best Best Male and Best Promoter awards.
Nothing for Mahala,,…i value the music and artist should get paid,,I’m out to get the cake up.
He was further quoted in B-Metro saying:
I am boycotting the awards because the organisers wants to take advantage of artistes. They should keep their award as it does not benefit me. They are charging $15 as entrance fee and if 100 people attend, it will mean they are going to raise $1500 but the artistes who are going to win on the day are not getting anything tangible. Even the peforming artistes are not going to be rewarded.
Reports are that MVP award nominee YOZ is also giving the awards a miss.
We will get a comment from the awards organisers as soon as we can get one.
The awards are set for 7 Arts in Harare on 11 December.
