Last weekend, all roads led to Huye in Southern Province, as the country’s leading music group celebrated after winning this year’s annual music awards.

The party was held at the National University of Rwanda’s main auditorium. The group’s fans flocked in large numbers to celebrate with boys, who did not disappoint. They belted out all their favourite songs including ‘Give it to me’ and “Ishamba”, among many more. 

‘We shall never forget the good times we had in Huye,” said Humble J.“The love we receive from our Huye fans, keeps us going back more often and we shall always make sure we don’t disappoint them,” the singer added.

Eric   Senderi, Ama G the Black, Queen Cha, Mico, Kid Gaju, Young Grace, Allioni, Major X, and Professor Nigga were among the artistes who performed at the concert.

Urban Boys emerged as the big winners at the Salax Awards 2013, taking home four trophies, including the coveted best video of the year for “Bibaye.”

The R&B trio composed of Saffi Lee, Nizzo and Humble J, beamed as they were handed the awards after a long night of watching others win in a colourful ceremony that was held at Kigali Serana Hotel on March 9.

Beating off stiff competition from big names such as, King James, Urban Boys took home four awards: Artiste of the Year, Best Group, Best Male Artiste and Best Video, emerging the biggest winners during the MTN-sponsored awards organised by Ikirezi Group.
