Zambia: Stan Stunner At Chapro Awards

LOCAL gospel artiste Stan Chipuma had a great transition from last year into the new year when he won big at the 2012 Christian Arts Promotions (CHAPRO) awards held at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka on New Year's Eve.

The honours are held every after two years and this year's ceremony was characterised by a poor turn-out which was as a result of heavy thunderstorms that rocked the capital city that evening.

The rains only eased up after midnight, forcing the organisers of the awards to start the ceremony late with a handful of people in the auditorium.

Some artistes were forced to perform in a near empty hall; however, the delivery of the performance was not affected by the low turn-out.

Nevertheless, the awards went on as planned where Chipuma was awarded the Most Consistent and Most Outstanding Male artiste and that meant he was the only artiste that won more than one award.

Karen won the Most Outstanding Female with Felix's Ndangeni Inshila winning the Most Popular song of the year.
