LUSAKA's premier night spot EastPoint is tonight expected to host the send-off party for Black Entertainment Film, Fashion, Television and Arts (BEFFTA) UK awards nominee Ruff Kid.

Eastpoint proprieter Anthony Chisola told Times Entertainment that he was very happy that one of the artistes that have been performing at his discotheque has been nominated for an international award.

"We are very happy as Eastpoint for the nomination of our boy at this year's BEFFTA awards and as such a big free party will take place at our premises to send off the singer," said Chisola.

Ruff Kid will be joined by his XYZ family that includes rapper Slap D, diva Nana and other fringe artistes under the label.

Ruff Kid was earlier this month nominated for the awards based in UK and became the second Zambian to be nominated for the BEFFTA in the best international act category after CRISIS won it last year and he is pitted with Africa's top charters Zahara, Camp Mulla, Cover Drive, Dbanj, and Grace Galaxy.
