Hip hop gems GNL Zamba, the self-styled king of luga-flow, hip hop’s number one female emcee Keko and star Navio had the best time at the Buzz Teenies Awards (BTAs) last Saturday, at the Lugogo Hockey Grounds.

If there was anything that the awards proved, it was that hip hop music is on the rise and has won acceptance with a crowd that will grow with it.

The youngsters went passionate, getting onto their feet, ululating with smiley faces as they jumped and hooped to the local hip hop jams as they chorused word to word.

GNL, was all in good spirit and came with a lot of energy to work the crowd that joined in chorusing this Wuuba to which everyone waved something in line with the song’s lyrics.

It was winners’ joy as GNL joined Mun G and Big Tril to celebrate taking home Teenies Hottest Group / Crew award under their Baboon Forest Entertainment.

Navio, on the other hand scooped the awards for the Teeniez Role Model most likely for his largely clean profile, Teeniez Male artist of the year as well as Teeniez top hood rapper.

“You guys made this happen. Thanks for voting for me and I’m grateful for this,” Navio said.

Emcee Keko too was celebrant, taking home Teeniez Female Artiste and Teeniez breakout artiste. “I wanna thank you all my peers. Without you there is no me, Hip Hop forever,” Keko said in her acceptance speech.

The Whistle Song by Locomotives scooped both Teeniez hottest collabo and Teeniez hottest hip hop song and the song’s producer, Just Jose from Swangz Avenue received it. “What can I say? I wanna thank everyone who voted for us. You make us happen,” was Jose’s brief speech. Washington, clad in a tunic, received the Teeniez Beat Maker, thanks for his Talk and talk by Mowzey Radio and Weasel. Aziz Azion was not in the house to receive the Teeniez Rn’B artiste and group while Coco Finger turned heads with his painted dancers with whom he came to receive the Teeniez Dancehall Artiste /Group Award.
Away from the awards, it was a show off fashion with youngsters sure to make a statement. One guy turned up in priestly attire.
