Kenyan artistes decided they wanted nothing to do with mdundo this year.
The ‘Mdundo Awards’ were held on Thursday last week but only Timmy T Dat, who won the most downloaded track in the hip hop category showed up to pick his award. None of the winners in the other six categories were present
That’s right. Timmy won an award in a hip hop category. Before we go far, this explains why artistes would want to snub the awards. How can Timmy win a Hip Hop award?
Timmy beat the likes of Khaligraph, Octopizzo, Vicmass Luodollar, The Kansoul and Frasha to win the award. That’s as crazy as it gets. Congratulations to him though.

Sauti Sol won the award for Most Downloaded Afro Pop song and were represented by their manager Marek Fuchs.
Gospel singer Mercy Masika dominated the night in absentia by winning three awards.
Masika won awards for the Most downloaded Gospel Artiste, Female Single of the year and Song of the Year as the empty seats cheered her on.
