The ZIMAs are an annual event that celebrates the achievements and contributions of Zimbabwean artists and professionals in the music industry. The theme for this year’s edition is “Re-Imaging the Industry” to reflect the resilience and innovation of the music sector amid the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The nominees for the 2023 ZIMAs were announced on 10 May, with Freeman HKD leading the pack with five nominations, including Best Album, Best Zimdancehall and Best Collaboration.
He is followed by Feli Nandi and Gemma Griffiths, who have four nominations each in categories such as Best Afropop/Afrofusion, Best Collaboration and Best Album. Other artists with multiple nominations are Saintfloew, Leo Magoz, Janet Manyowa, Fusion 5 Mangwiro, Mark Ngwazi and Dorcas Moyo.
