Hip hop artiste Chipunza excited about being recognised in Africa

Story Highlights
  • “The recognition came unaware as I did not enter the awards, I was nominated and voted and this means my work is being recognised in Africa,” said Hillzy.

Zimbabwean born hip-hop and Rhythm and Blues artist Hillzy says he is excited to have been recognised in Africa.

Hillzy whose real name is Hillary Chipunza said he was shocked that he was nominated for this year’s Sixth African Music Awards in the Best Artiste, Duo or Group in African R&B and Soul category.

“The recognition came unaware as I did not enter the awards, I was nominated and voted and this means my work is being recognised in Africa,” said Hillzy.

He said he has tried to enter the local music awards such as the Zim Hip Hop Awards and the National Arts and Merit Awards but they have snubbed him as he was not even nominated.

Hillzy is based in South Africa.
