The long awaited Gasua Awards is finally here!! 10 days to go is a phrase hitting everyone’s ears on social media today. According to Kevin Ombwori aka Kay B (one of the stakeholders), the second edition of the event, that is set to be held from 2:00pm on 31st Dec 2016 in Gusii stadium, will be bigger much better as compared to last year’s. However, there are so many categories that have been omitted. An example is ‘Blog of the year’, which could have probably been awarded to gusiiyonsi.co.ke.
Winners in every category will be awarded a total amount of Ksh. 10,000 plus a trophy, all by courtesy of Kisii County Government and Egesa FM. Sources say that sponsors were supposed to award Ksh. 100,000 to every winner but Governor Ongwae didn’t come out clear about it.
Another exciting part of it is that the voting system, which was interrupted by a technical hitch in the past week, has now been fixed and those who had not voted for their favorite nominees are requested to make their choice, and show their love and support for Kisii musicians. The voting period has been extended to 30th Dec, 2016 to make up for the lost days.
Remember the voting process is very simple. It only involves composing an SMS with the keyword of your favorite nominee and sending to 20977.
VM5 for Kamtuflani and send to 20977.
VB2 for Brenda Mokaya
VE3 for Babu GEE
VI4 for Nyashinski
VI3 for Raj
VI2 for Smallz Lethal
