The second edition of the prestigious Social Media Awards (SMAs) was held on the night of the 7th March after a period of online nominations and voting. We were nominated for the Social Media Awards in the category of Best Blog/Blogger for our role here and on our platforms. It was and still is an absolute honor. We want to thank all of you that voted and sent messages to encourage us to keep doing the great work. We are eternally grateful.
The night of the Social Media Awards started with the arrival of the nominees and the crowd that filled the Golf Course Hotel hall to capacity. This was as early as a few minutes to 5:00pm though the event only commenced at exactly 7:00pm.
Christian rapper Ruyonga was among the three main artists for the night and went on to deliver great Hip Hop and rap music. Ruyonga performed Eija Nkutware to welcome the excited guests in his first set and came back after a few awards were given out to offer us the full course. He also performed his new single, RRUU for the first time at the Social Media Awards Uganda backed up by Roy Kasika on the drums and DJ Twonjex on the ones and twos. This tag team, if we may call it, was a force that left us fully satisfied with the music.
