HiPipo Music Awards

Bio

The HiPipo Music Awards (HMA) celebrates, promotes and awards music excellence among Ugandan musicians and artists, both within and outside Uganda. Organized by East African digital agency HiPipo, the first edition of the HiPipo Music Awards was held on 9 February 2013 at the Theater La Bonita in Kampala, Uganda. The second HMA took place on 14 February 2014 and culminated with a gala night at Wonder World (formerly Didi’s World) Auditorium in Kansanga, Kampala. The third HiPipo Music Awards take place on Saturday 7 February 2015 at the same venue.

To be considered, an artist must have released audio or video music content within 12 months prior to October of any year. The artist or group must have a Ugandan nationality. An exception is made for collaborative acts of Ugandan artists with an international artist/s, and in certain specialized categories. Each category has four or eight nominees. The nominees come from different nominating stakeholders, including musicians, video/audio producers, songwriters, media personalities (radio, TV, and print) and the general public. Once nominations are complete, the public votes via SMS and the official HiPipo Music Awards (HMA) website. Starting at HMA2015, HMA has introduced the Music Assembly, which consists of representative of different stakeholder in the music industry. The Music Assembly will vote on selected categories.
