After a two-month long registration and academy voting process, nominees for the 3rd edition of the Groove Awards will be unveiled at Serena Hotel-Kigali on Sunday.
According to one of the organizers; Rene Herbert Nsengiyumva, the event; dubbed ‘Groove Awards 2015 Nomination Night’, will bring together the people who submitted their content for nomination as well as other industry players and media personalities.

Groove Awards aim at promoting, exposing and celebrating gospel talents in East Africa.

The event will also feature performances by gospel choirs and artistes.
