March 4, 2010 – With the theme “Bling it Out!” the Chaguo la Teeniez (CHAT) Awards is going to be taking place on April 17, with Insyder teaming up with Safaricom’s Skiza platform and Cadbury’s.
The new year comes with new tidings and this means a Sh6 million sponsorship for the Insyder Skiza CHAT Awards. Cadbury’s offering will be through their wafer product named Cadbury SMS and they are the official Nominees CD Sponsors.
We are expecting a dramatic red carpet, which will see the nominees, and other artists try to outshine each other in their quest to prove to the teeniez that they indeed deserve the awards. It will be interesting to see who blings it out best.
