The nomination list for the prestigious 2020 MAMA Awards was released on Wednesday, 9th December 2020. It however excluded key musicians like Winnie Nakanwagi a.k.a Winnie Nwagi that have risen considerably this year.
Disappointed, a number of socialites such as Sheilah Gashumba wondered why Winnie Nwagi wasn’t included.
“Why isn’t Winnie Nwagi nominated in the Best Ugand act? She had a better year or even two years than most of the artistes on that list.” she complained on Twitter.
However, responding to the pencil sized socialite’s remarks, Winnie Nwagi admitted that she is the most under rated artiste and her exclusion must not come as a surprise. She added that as long as she pays her own bills, other issues like awards are outside her concern.
“Am the most underated but I still pay my bills in time.” she wrote.
Among the Ugandan artistes that were nominated include Spice Diana, John Blaq, Vinka, Sheebah and Bebe Cool.
The award ceremony will take place in February 2021 in Uganda.
