Curtains draw to a near close on Groove Awards 2018 voting phase

Fans have 3 more days to vote for their favourites for the Groove Awards 2018 as the ceremony draws closer.

Public voting began at 10am on Friday June 8, 2018 and will run until midnight June 23, 2018.

This year’s winners will be announced on June 24, 2018 at the Gala Awards ceremony to be held on Sunday.

A winner’s concert is slated shortly after the awards ceremony on July 8, 2018 at The Embu Municipal Council Stadium and will see all winners meeting their fans to celebrate their wins whilst appreciating their support during the nomination and voting process.

Nominees were unveiled days ago at a red-carpet nomination ceremony that saw several new entrants make it to the nominees list.

Scoring the highest number of nods was Shoot Satan hitmaker Jabidii, who led with an impressive 7 nominations including Song of the Year and Teens Choice Song of the Year (in which he received 2 nominations) Breakthrough Artist of the year, Collabo of the year and Dance style/song of the Year in which he also received 2 nominations.

Gloria Muliro followed closely with 6 nominations in Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, twice under the Praise and Worship song of the Year, Collabo of the Year and Western Counties song of the Year categories.

Controversial artistes Willy Paul and Bahati also managed to sneak their way back into the nomination list after being omitted for the past two years due to varied reasons.

With 3 more days left for voting, artists have reached out to fans for their support on various platforms urging them to vote for them so that they can take home the coveted statuette at the 13th edition of the Awards Ceremony.

According to Groove, this year’s involvement of the public was driven by a strong desire to give greater ownership and participation to music fans across the country.
