Zim Hip-Hop Awards


The Zim Hip-Hop Awards is a Zimbabwean event that was founded by Aldrin Harrison and Alexander Mutumha in 2011with the aim of promoting the country’s hip-hop scene. The ceremony is held every year during the second week of December. Since its establishment, winners are given a statue known as a ‘fist’. To qualify for the awards, an artist's music has to be played on local radio stations such as Power FM, Star FM or ZiFM Stereo between October of the previous year and October of the current year.

In 2012, the organisers of the organization divided into two camps, with one camp accusing another of publishing a fake list of nominees. In 2013, the judges withdrew at the last minute, claiming that they were not furnished with artist material needed for a fair judgment.

The event awards musicians in some of the following categories: best positive social contribution; best solo dancer; best corporate brand supporting hip-hop; best album art, best dance crew; best promoter; best radio DJ; best producer; best club DJ; and others.
