MBABANE - Local artists need your votes.   The above statement holds true for local artists who were nominated for LOGMA.
The Association of Christian Artists in Eswatini (ACAESWA), a few weeks ago, announced that it would be hosting online gospel awards dubbed ‘Lockdown Gospel Music Awards’ (LOGMA).
The awards, which will take place in November, were officially launched on July 11, 2020 at The George Hotel in Manzini.

ACAESWA Public Relations Officer Nhlanhla Mathunjwa yesterday officially shared the voting score board.
The nominations had public and technical categories.


The public category was decided by the public and nominations were open to anyone who qualified, while the technical category was to be decided by the adjudicating panel, except for ‘The Most Downloaded Gospel Song’ category, which will be based on online statistics.
“We have been getting positive responses from the public as we had requested them to nominate their favourite gospel artists and they have been responding well. The current COVID-19 pandemic has pushed us to wear our creative caps and we will be having a great online show,” Mathunjwa said.

He went on to encourage people to continue supporting local artists by voting.
Fakazi Samuel, who is leading in the Lockdown Best New Gospel Artist category, expressed his excitement and thanked people for their support. “I’m very thankful to God for this opportunity and also grateful for the continued support from emaSwati and people from outside the country. May God do more for them. I also urge the public to continue voting,” Samuel said.
Fezile Matsebula, who is also leading in the Lockdown Best Female Gospel Artist category, thanked the organisers of the awards for coming up with a fruitful idea.


She also expressed her excitement and urged people to continue voting.
“I don’t know what to say but I am honoured by the love and support I am getting from people. My mission is to spread the gospel, and as I am still new in the industry, I am glad to receive such love. I would also like to urge people to continue voting,” Matsebula said.

The voting lines are still open and people can send an SMS as follows; VOTE ARTISTS CODE TO 6677.
The voting will be according to the category code abbreviations followed by the artist’s number, which are two digits.
It is worth noting that the awards will be held in partnership with the Eswatini National Council of Arts and Culture, Destiny Group, Old Mutual Eswatini, Premier Bakeries, Dem Dem Recording Studios as well as Eswatini Investment Promotion Authority.
