Ali Kiba feted as Diamond Platnumz is overlooked at Tanzania’s Plus TV Awards

Several Tanzanian music players have emerged victorious in the 2020 Plus TV awards.

According to the TV station, the awards were meant to reward outstanding acts within the bongo scene following a challenging year.

“Kiwanda cha burudani nchini kimeendelea kukua kila uchao, yapo mengi mazuri yaliyofanywa ndani ya mwaka mzima wa 2020 iwe ni kwa wasanii au wadau wengine wa sanaa. Plus TV tumeyaona na tunaheshimu wote waliofanikisha kufanyika hayo mazuri yatokee kwenye sanaa kwa kutoa heshima ya tuzo kwao. Tunawavika tuzo vinara wa 2020,” the station posted.

The winners from the awards include: Ali Kiba won Best video for ‘Dodo’, Harmonize won Male artist of the Year, Nandy won Female Artist of the Year, Zuchu took home the award for Song of the Year for ‘Wana’, Darassa was also awarded for his release ‘I like it’ and Tommy Flavor was feted as Best Songwriter.

Notably, Diamond Platnumz missed out of the wards. The WCB boss is considered the best Bongo musicians at the moment.

The Plus TV awards are significant since they are currently among the few homegrown Tanzania music awards.

The awards come at a period when various stakeholders in the Bongo scene have been urging the government to invest in local music awards.

Konde Worldwide boss Harmonize has been on the campaign’s forefront stating that international awards lack a local touch.
