Veteran musician Abdoul Makanyaga, Knowless Butera, Bull Dog, Fireman, TBB and Young Grace among others are expected to entertain the guests at the award ceremony.

According to Patrick Uwineza the vice president of REMO, the music industry could not have developed without the support of local leaders and promoters.

“We are thankful because we have good leadership even though it is difficult to measure the role local leaders are playing to promote music but we know it is huge,

“The fact that we are free to do what we wish and we are given total freedom as well as financial and moral support is enough to recognise their contribution,” said Uwineza
