HILLZY & GARRY MAPANZURE SCOOP 'THE BEST DUO in AFRICAN R'n'B and SOUL AWARD' at the 2019 ALL AFRICA MUSIC AWARDS
The 6th All Africa Music Awards 2019 have come and gone but winners celebrate forever. The prestigious event is one of the best awards ceremony that brings the cream of African music together. The event was attended by music stars, dignitaries, and music lovers from across the continent. The awards were held in Lagos Nigeria over the weekend to celebrate and reward African talents who have done exceptionally well in the year. Last year awards were held in Ghana.
The young Zimbabwean duo of Hillzy and Garry Mapanzure scooped a shocker when they took 'The Best Artist, Duo or Group in African RnB and Soul Award for the song 'TV Room' which was released in February by Hillzy featuring Garry Mapanzure.
In this category they were going against the best artists like Davido and Christ Brown's 'Blow My Mind', Shekinah& Tellaman& Nasty C's 'Whipped' from South Africa, Anna Joyce's Destino from Angola among others. Last year the award was taken by Praiz from Nigeria for the song 'Champaign & flowers'.
Hillzy and Garry Mapanzure took to social media to thank their fans for believing in them and casting their votes. Hillzy wrote, "Dear Zimbabwe and world at large. Everything is possible in HIS name, right? They are probably shook because they didn't vote or didn't believe right? I am mighty speecheless right now at the love you gave @garrymapanzure and I. You officially voted for us as Best RnB Song in Africa-Tv Room. All I want to say is THANK YOU for your time and support. When Jesus says Yes nobody can say NO! Thanks to AFRIMA for giving us the platform to serve our purpose. Tinotenda."
Garry could not hide his joy as he too took to social media to thank everyone who made it possible. He wrote, "...I thank God and I can never thank Him enough for this gift and all He's doing. I want to thank you all for the love, the votes and support, 6 songs later and we have an AFRIMA Award in the bag. This is only the beginning. It's God. To more love, to more music, the gift is forever and I pray, I bless your ears. #GODBLESSTHEHUSTLE Onlyway is up."
Congratulations to the duo for raising the Zimbabwe flag high in the music industry.
