If there is any musical artiste’s career progressing steadily that would Vinka of Swangz Avenue. Vinka has been rewarded for having a good year in the music industry by getting nominated in the Hippo Awards rather than one of the genuine musical awards left in Uganda.
Though last year was dull in the music faculty, Vinka stood out since she released numerous tracks that were so popular on the airwaves of Uganda. Vinka made hits like Chips ne Ketchup, Sweet love, Tubikole, and Omukwano Gwo.
With the hits she made last year, the Hippo awards management nominated her in four categories namely; Artist of the Year, Best Female Artist, video of the year, and collaboration of the year. This is by no surprise since her song chips ne Ketchup was a bagger. The aforementioned song ruled the entire year ever since it was released and it was on each and every musical countdown.
Vinka being nominated for the Hippo awards is such a headline because she has been in the music industry for only two years. It is such a great feat to be nominated in prestigious awards like the Hippo awards.
This coming ceremony of the Hippo awards will be the 8th edition since its inception in 2012. The Hippo awards commemorate and promote artists in Uganda since it rewards those that have excelled each and every year.
Voting for the HiPipo awards is open to the public and the awards grand finale will take place on March 16, 2019, at the Kampala Serena Hotel.
