Stunner has been nominated in the Best Male (Southern Africa) category alongside the likes of South African singer Khuli Chana as well as Slap Dee of Zambia. The local rappper said the nomination is a great achievement as it shows that he is in the right direction musically.
“I was really excited to be nominated and I am even more proud of myself considering the guys I’m up against,” said Stunner.
“The nomination tells me that whatever I am doing is just fine and the steps may be short but they are definitely in the right direction.”
The urban grooves singer whose songs such as “Team Hombe” and “Godo” were the youths anthem for some time said over the years he had been experimenting with different sounds but now believes he has found a unique style that would define his music.
“Over the years I have been experimenting with different sounds trying to find my ideal footing. Some of the sounds have not been successful while others made a mark but now I believe I have sounds which I can relate to as part of the Stunner brand and the nomination comes as an icing on the cake,” he said.
The singer has been in the music business for some time but his big breakthrough came with the 2006 hit “Team Hombe” which seems to have transformed both his fortunes and career.
The African Muzik Magazine awards are set to be held on July 26 in Richardson, Texas in the US. The awards are hugely based on votes from the general public and Zimbabwean music followers would be the major contributors to the musician’s performance at the awards.
