Well, the 2009 Salax Awards are officially over, and a surprising duo cleaned-up this year—The Ben, who took home two awards for Best Male Artist and Best R&B Artist, while Miss JoJo was voted for Best Female Artist. Inganzo Ngari emerged the Best Cultural Troup and APR/Amavubi’s goalkeeper Jean Luc, a.k.a Bakame also faired quite nicely, nabbing the award for Most Valuable Player.
Kanyombya was voted for Best Comedian but unfortunately, Mani Martin won anything, despite his rocking singles.
Tom Close, who bagged two wards for Best Album and Best Video, hit the red carpet in an amazing fashion, a Masai dress and sandals to compliment his style.
The event was organised by Ikirezi Group in collaboration with Ministry of Sports and Culture and it took place on June 4 at Petit Stade.
