Organizers of the Victoria Gospel Academy (VIGA) awards have confirmed that they will on 3rd March announce nominees after they received numerous entries for the various categories.
The nomination bash expected at National Theatre Gardens – Kampala, will be graced by a number of artists including Hum Kay, Levixone, Pr Wilson Bugembe, Lena Price, Sseku Martin, Beth Ssesanga, Lyrical Mycheal among others.
VIGA, in conjunction with the Gospel Federation of Uganda, has a constituted team of panelists that propose and forward entries for nomination, basing majorly on what transpired in the media.
The panelists fill a nomination form suggesting three names per category to be considered. The technical committee tallies these proposals to come out with the final nominees list.
Nominees will then be subjected to public voting through an SMS and online system, and the winners announced at a glamorous red carpet finale on Easter Eve, Saturday 31st March, 2018.
Meanwhile, this development comes on the heals of a sealed Coca Cola sponsorship deal.
Prince Nick Nyombi the Chairman of VIGA Music Awards said in a statement, “we thank God for the sponsorship and it comes at an ideal moment. It will go a long way to improve the event execution this year.”
Other sponsors include Christ Heart Ministries International, JC Label Ug, Studio SN, Ug Extra among others.
