Zambian list for the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMMA) nominees continues to grow with Slapdee, Bombshell Grenade and Sampa the great among the new list of nominees.
Slapdee – godfather of hip hop in Zambia – was nominated in the Best Male Southern Africa category. He will battle it out with the likes of Focalistic (South Africa), Shimza ( South Africa), Jah Prayzah (Zimbabwe) among others.
Bombshell and Sampa will battle it out on the Best Female Rap Act category with the likes of Nadai Nakai (South Africa), Muthoni The Drummer Queen (Kenya), Ms Banks (Nigeria), Rosa Ree (Tanzania) and Askia (Cameroon).
Bombshell Grenade recently dropped her album ‘Mfumu Kadzi’ in July. ‘Mfumu Kadzi’ is special in many ways. It is a powerful gift for Zambia delivered in amazing and fascinating rap composition by the rap queen herself.
Mfumu Kadzi’ is a composition of life lessons aimed at making Zambia a better place. The new album emphasizes on women empowerment, and also captivates with its call for unity as a people in order to make “a village” a better place”.
For Sampa, she continues making Zambia a great place musically despite living in Australia while Slapdee’s Mother Tongue album is still fresh in the minds of people.
