All is set for the second edition of the Victors Awards to be held at the Celebration Centre in Harare on 21st November. The awards, which are in their second year, will celebrate the contribution made by different personnel in business, Government, religion, art, music and dance among others. The event will see local acts such as Amara Brown, Mudiwa, Dudu Manhenga, Cindy Munyavi and Rolex dance group sharing the stage in entertaining the crowd.

Some of the artists are also expected to do a tributary act to the late Andy Brown.

In an interview with The Herald, awards spokesperson Tafara Matono said all was going according to plan.

"This year is bigger and better. It is a red carpet event with a black tie affair and a lot of fireworks are expected. Guests will be treated in different rooms were diplomats, ministers, musicians and actors among others will be networking before the event," he said.

Matono said international acclaimed Dr Juanita Bynum is expected to grace the glamourous event.

"I can confirm that the renowned pastor is set to grace the event and expected to dine with victors and can't say much now," he said.

Commenting on the categories, Matono said there were no nominees currently but winners would be announced in 12 categories.

"There are 34 awards and 12 categories. Interesting to note, this year will see five super mums in different sectors receiving awards. All winners will receive an inscribed trophy and a certificate in their respective field," he said.

Matono said popular DJ Tich Mataz will co-host the event as one of the MCs.

"We are going to have five masters of ceremonies on different position at the event, since we are expecting more than 3000 people. We are going to mount big screens outside the amphitheatre for some who would not have made it in the big hall to see," explained Matono.

Last year some of the people who were honoured included Oliver Mtukudzi, Tawanda Nyambirai, Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa, Mai Chisamba, Winky D, Wendall, Bishop Tudor Bismark and Phillip Chiyangwa making the list.

The awards celebrate the achievements and inspiring story of Victor Kambasha.
