Tay Grin beaten by Emtee

119

It’s a gloomy week for Malawi’s top notch musician Tay Grin following his recent loss to South African Emtee.

The Malawi flag bearer failed to bring home the accolade in the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA), as best artist from Southern Africa, at a colourful ceremony that was held in Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday.

Tay Grin-Chipapa

Tay Grin: Has failed to bring home the accolade.

South African high flying rapper Emtee proved to be too good for his competitors as evidenced by his win in the category. He came against strong challenge from six internationally recognised artists from the region to claim the award.

Apart from Tay Grin, Emtee whose real name is Mthembeni Ndebvu, defeated his countrymen, the legendary Hugh Masekela, AKA, Nasty C, and Ndunduzo Makhathini. He also won at the expense of Zimbabwe’s Jah Prayzah.

It was another red letter night for Nigerian artists as they dominated the awards. Wiz Kid, Ycee, and Orezi are among the artists from that country who got honoured.

 

Malian and Zimbabwean legends Salif Keita and Oliver Mtukudzi, were recognised in the African legend category.
