Top radio station, Star FM, will announce the nominees for the inaugural Star FM Music Awards this Friday on the 326 Xpress Show presented by KVG and Phathisani.
The announcement will also be live streamed on the Star FM Facebook Page.
The station announced that they managed to get 1 800 entries for the 21 categories.
Most contested categories included the Afro Pop, Gospel, Male Artiste of the year and the Album of the Year.
Adjudication of the entries is currently underway with the auditors.
Speaking to H-Metro, Star FM Music Awards manager, Zandile Zaza Ndlovu, she said:
“We are very excited for the overwhelming support from all our musicians who took their time to enter into our inaugural music awards.
“As a station, we get our entries from the music that we play and to see all the big names as well as the new artistes actively participating just gives us that endorsement that we are the station of choice.
“We do have a large portion of the urban market share which attracts listenership and corporate partnerships and this has seen our awards being driven by Impala Car Rental with support from Jan Jam and Club Sankayi.
“We want to thank all the musicians in a special way for this support and assure them a glitzy and exciting awards show.”
The wards will be held on January 25 at the Zimbali Gardens in Greendale.
