GROOVE BRINGS IT HARD AT NOMINEES UNVEILING



If the well organized Groove Nominees announcement on Tuesday at the Louse Leakey is anything to go by, I can't wait for the gala night on April 30 at the KICC.



Most times, during the announcements of award nominees the structure employed involves having members of the fourth estate and the nominees sitting at some fancy club drinking or in formal setting like at a presser similar to those held by the minister of education to release the list of top KCSE or KCPE students.
Groove Awards organisers took their time to think out a fun way of announcing this year nominees by staging a show that wss complete with a mock news broadcast that was pre-recorded.



R Kay's first born and only child Prince was the MC for the night, co hosting with artiste, Joyce Omondi.
Anyho, the list was unveiled and last year's big names were completely missing out and some bagging one or two nominations.



New comers like Man Igwe and Kevoyouth bagged nominations in the big boys league - the Male Artiste Of The year Category. The same applied to the female artiste where the perennial list included Esther Wahome, Kambua and Emmy Kosgei.
This could only mean that the industry is growing at a rate where the old guard new to catch up of get caught out.
The nominees all released their music between January 1 2010 and December 31 2010.
