In last year's show, our voting system and criteria stood out to be the punching bag for critics, claiming the whole thing was not transparent. Because of this, the organizing team came up with a genius idea of letting the public run the whole thing. How? You may be wondering; well, this year a chance has been given to the public to propose ways in which they think the show can be made a success and at the end of the day have very little, or no criticism at all. The first step was to let you, our esteemed fans, propose the categories that you would like to see candidates nominated to be voted for. This was done by engaging you through our various social media platforms, through which you came out to voice your opinions which we aboded to.
Secondly, we asked you to nominate the candidates of your choice to be voted for in the various categories getting released through our social media platforms on a daily basis. The process is ongoing, with our email address currently overflowing with your nominations, which we really appreciate. So far, we have released nineteen (19) categories as below in which you have been nominating your preferred candidates:
- Hip Hop Artist of The Year.
- Best Music Group of The Year.
- Upcoming Artist of the Year.
- Male Gospel Artist of the Year.
- Female Gospel Artist of the Year.
- Radio Show of The Year.
- Best Collaboration of The Year.
- Emcee of the Year.
- Gospel Emcee of the Year.
- Producer of the Year.
- Video Producer of the Year.
- Male Radio Presenter of the Year.
- Female Radio Presenter of the Year.
- Female Model of The Year.
- Male Model of The Year.
- Mr. & Miss. Campus.
- Fashion Designer of The Year.
- Photographer of The Year.
- Graphic Designer of The Year.
(The above categories are in no particular order, nominate your preferred candidates' name by emailing their name and respective category to email@example.com)
Now, after last year's claims that some of the winning persons were not known to you and that had done very little or nothing of contribution towards the growth of the entertainment scene in Mombasa, we have decided that after you guys are done with nominating your candidates, our technical team will sit and analyze them, eliminate where necessary until we remain with only five (5) entries in each category, for it will be nonsensical to have two hundred (200) nominees in one given category. These lucky five (5) in each category will then be taken through a series of interviews by our technical team, seeking them to let us all know what they are about. The videos will then be posted on our Youtube Channel for you to watch and judge where necessary,
Having cleared the air concerning what you guys should expect moving forward, the writer of this post welcomes your opinions and any questions to our official email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
