The 9th annual edition of the prestigeous Hipipo music awards ceremony for this year will be presented as a livestream on Friday 29th of May 2020.
The platform on which they will be streaming on live is only Facebook where numerous Ugandans reside these days compared to other social networks.
Originally, the awards were supposed to be held at the Kampala Serena Hotel on March 14th but due to a logistical problem with one of the critical suppliers, the event was called off by the CEO Innocent Kawooya in early March.
Voting for the musicians who will take home the awards was started a long time ago in January of this same year when the nominations lists were released by the Hipipo team.
This voting which is done online through Facebook and the Hipipo website was supposed to run from the date the nominations were released (6th Jan) up to the date of the event (14th March) but this has all been extended until the new date of 29th May.
There will be exclusive performances from top Ugandan artists on that day such as Sheebah Karungi, Kian Banks, Roden Y, Triplets Ghetto Kids, Kenneth Mugabi among others.
