The group was nominated in the Music Video of The Year category as well as The Music Artist of The Year.

The music video category is the latest gong to feature in this years categories.

“We have been inundated with some outstanding nominations this year, and it highlighted the exceptional work that Zimbabweans are doing, not only in the UK but aboard,”  said ZAA panel chairperson, Tawanda Chiwira.

“The Zim Achievers have been around for seven years and in that time, the vision that started simply with highlighting and recognising what Zimbabweans are doing in the UK has turned into something bigger.

The community spirit that has been built and the calibre of individuals and organisations that we have recognised over the years really shows how talented, determined and studious Zimbabweans are in building something we can all be proud of,” he added.

Voting will commence on Monday March, 20  until  April, 30. Thereafter, votes will be verified by ZAA’s panel of professionals who will arduously assess shortlisted candidates and match up their achievements with the set criteria before emerging with this year’s list of winners.

This year’s awards will be held on Saturday May 6, 2017 at the Cumberland Hotel in London.
