ZIMA Awards 2015 Nominees out

The long awaited list of the Zimbabwe Music Awards for 2015 nominees is finally out but the ceremony will now be held early next year.

At a press briefing in the city, the organisers had this to say:

ZIMA is proud to host this short ceremony to announce the results of what has been largely a gruelling and long journey to determine the nominees in a raft of categories. Indeed we have come up with what should reflect the clearest possible picture of artistes that excelled in the period under focus, who submitted their works for consideration according to our traditional criterion.

The list always generates a lot of talk and debate among fans and musicians and the organisers are aware of it:

We hope the list of nominees raises interest and excitement. Most importantly, we hope it helps us celebrate Zimbabwean talent together as we seek to make ZIMA bigger and better with each coming year.

Here is the list:
