Congratulations to all the nominees.

  • Chokwadi_Chete

    hmmm. Im a Zimbo. I only know about 4 of these people. So, what have they achieved? Kikiki

    • Well there are millions of Zimbabweans out there. We are sure there are a few that can be missed

      • Chokwadi_Chete

        Moderator singing for our supper are we?

  • David Gwete

    I too am a Zimbo, entrepreneur. The only one I have heard of is William Sachiti. He is quite a force in the London start-up scene, didn’t even know he was Zimbabwean.

    • Tawanda

      Yes, Sachiti’s bins with TV screens are everywhere central London at the moment. I bet the dragons regret not investing. There are many Zimbabweans who are doing great things in the UK that should also be on the list but as a previous commenter said – A few will be missed.

  • Nia

    Mudiwa Hood????
    Jesus Christ…. I miss Sam Mtukudzi

  • Nonhle

    Guys, really. Its only one or two names that are familiar. But the rest is just bull. I am really involved in community development, arts & culture and the entertainment world, i cant recall any of the people on the list. I think Zimbabwe should quit naming events “Zimbabwean” if it has nothing to do with the countries people. Rather find a different name that will suit your own people, not hide behind “Zimbabwean”

    • Well there are people you know that others do not know. They did call for nominations in their defence
