The Uganda Music Awards event was held yesterday on August 4, 2017 at Kampala Serena Hotel in Victoria which saw a number of various musicians turning up for the ceremony.
The TAMU awards saw artists like Eddy Kenzo taking the spot light as he won Artist of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and the Best Urban Artiste.
Meanwhile, Irene Ntale dominated the female category winning the Female Artist of the Year award. The Best Video award went to Wantegula by Abaasa while Rabadaba surprised the crowd when he took the Best Raggae Dancehall award.
As usual, there was no sight of Bebe Cool anywhere because earlier this year, he requested all Uganda awards organizers not to include him in any of their awards.
