The 4th edition of the Masvingo music awards was held this weekend with organisers saying there is room for improvement if more sponsors come on board.

Masvingo came alive yesterday evening and the Charles Austin Theatre was the place to be for music lovers as it hosted the Masvingo music awards.

Dressed to kill, the audience flaunted their best attire on the red carpet.

The awards saw energetic  performances being dished out by various musical groups from the province.

Awards organisers Proud and Pride Masekesa, twins from the Ancient City said over the years they have tried to better the standards of the awards but their biggest challenge so far has been lack of support from the corporate sector, which has left them hosting the event on a shoe string budget.

“Our performances are getting better each year. The quality, the ambience is getting better with each year,” said Pride Masekesa.

“This year’s awards were much better than last year. The musicians are getting better. The first year we had just about 180 people but now the numbers keep increasing,” Proud said.

Among those who won were Anatsi Zabhura who walked away with the best female musician award, Ted Alchemy who was awarded best male musician, known in music circles as Baba Rah also won the best song message  award.

The late Andy Brown was honoured with a post humous life time achievement award.
