The 12th version of the Kora Awards were held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on Dec 30, 2012.
Nigeria's P-Square, US rapper Chris Brown and his girl friend Rihanna attended though according to media reports, the event that was slated to take place on December 29 was postponed to the next day after Chris Brown missed his flight.
The awards dubbed 'African Grammy Awards' saw Uganda's Juliana Kanyomozi winning in the category of 'Best Female Artist from Eastern Africa'. Juliana beat the likes of Marya from Kenya, Helen Berhe and Asther Aweke from Ethiopia, Saida Karoli of the Wachekekya fame and Ikraan Caraale from Somalia.
The award of Best Male Artist from Eastern Africa went to Jean Pierre Nimbona aka Kidum from Burundi with his song 'Mulika Mwizi' featuring Sana.
Juliana expressed her gratitude and thanks through her wall: "Sometimes I run out of words to express my happiness and gratitude. I won the Kora for the best Female Artist East Africa. Thank you Kora for the recognition. Thank you all my loving fans from the bottom of my heart for always lifting me up. My heavenly father, you have blessed me beyond, how can I ever pay you back? You are indeed faithful."
'I am Ugandan' is the song that led Juliana to win the Kora award and she did not leave out the team she worked with on the I am Ugandan project that included the Tusker Project Fame 2 winner, Esther Nabaasa, Steve Jean, Kaweesa, Michael Fingers and Onoh.
Meanwhile, Kidum did Haturudi Nyuma featuring Juliana but going by the track, the sky is the limit for our stars.
Their daughter turned 7, a few days back.
During the interview, MC Kats caught up with his baby mama on a number of issues ranging from her Extended Play that she will be releasing soon, the two collaboration songs that King Saha agreed to work on with Fille.
Asked what the magic was, and Hellen was like and that is nothing, he is capable of a lot more.
"I have two children, Ata and Ark, with my Heaven sent Anwar, we have been together for five years. I am a good person and my hubby is the only one in this world, he was made for me and by the way, that is nothing compared to the things he has done."
In a Snapchat post decorated with green snakes emojis, God's Plan who is currently in the UK has revealed how the 'Bango' singer ended up dating his then girlfriend Sheilah Gashumba.
"He used to come to my apartment to chill, drink and eat food..."
Not long back, when Zari was explaining how she hit the rocks with King Bae, who turned out to be romance scammer, she said that it is not about money when it comes to dating her, so even the not so loaded guys were welcome to give it a try, but looking at her new lover, GK Choppa, he seems to be wearing two faces, in him you see a combination of her late hubby and Diamond Platnumz.
