OS and his new catch look on as Jackie receives the Video of the year award
Winners jubilated, losers cried. The glamour as well as the swag was on last Saturday at UMA Lugogo for this year's Pearl of Africa Music Awards. TGIF's Rowland Nkahebwa talked to some of the winners and losers regarding their views on this year's  accolades. Below are some of them.

Jackie Chandiru - Oh my! Female artiste of the year? I'm not yet there but Iam glad I was nominated in that category. It means I can potentially be one. As far as nominations go, the awards were fine but it used to bother me that artistes got nominated in categories they shouldn't have been.

Mun*G - There must have been a network problem and my fans messages ere not going through. The fans know the truth though.

Navio - Exactly, I should have been nominated in that artiste of the year category or at least video of the year for 'Keep Moving'. Mith should have been in Hip Hop for his song 'Fire' and Mun*G really did well this year.

I guess the fans opinion is all that matters. It is good a neutral Ernst & Young handled the auditing and voting issues not PAM organizers. Fans have the last say.

Pastor Wilson Bugembe - Iam grateful to th fans because I did not expect to win anything this year. PAM Awards were fair and every winner deserved it. As for my category, Hilderman did well and Im happy for him because his song is good and I love it. He deserved to win by all means.

Toniks - Well I guess anyone who knows what RnB is can see that I am the only artiste in Uganda who really is supposed to appear in that category. The other nominees have made good music but it is not R&B. Surely how can the same song be in R&B and Afro Beat categories? So is it R&B or Afro Beat?

The bottom line is that 90% of Ugandan musicians are supposed to be in the same category and that is Afro Beat or Afro Pop. How can you put Tonik's 'That Gal' and Iryn Namubiru's Birowoozo, or Aziz Azion's ''Oxygen'' in the same category? Unless you have a hearing problem.

GNL Zamba - Well I was not in the country for the awarding ceremony but basing on what I have heard and read in the papers, I think that whoever sponsors PAM awards dictates the winners.

In the Hip Hop category that Iam interested in, Mun*G really deserved to win the two awards. Anyway, at the end of the day, there are always winners but there is always the next year for the losers. (Note: Snoops spotted GNL at the awards. Claiming he wasn't present is a lie).

Radio & Weasel - We are putting all our focus on the MTV and Channel O awards. We don't care about PAM awards.

Hilderman -  I was very surprised because I did not expect to win. However personally Iam going by the public opinion and they say that the PAM was fair.

Vampino - Ugandan music can never progress if awards of recognition are being given to the wrong people.

Grace Nakimera - I am not going to lie. I do not know because I was not present at Lugogo for the awarding ceremony. My sister was wedding and I could not miss it for anything.

OS* Suna - There was an element of unfairness at the PAM Awards this year but I don't care about the awards. The fact that I was nominated means Iam already a winner because my hard work is being recognized.

Album launch madness has taken a new tumbling twist. Info from the corridors of Fire Base Crew is that Ghetto Gladiator is set to launch his latest album on the same day that the PAM Awards will be held.

PAM Awards organisers have already earmarked November 5 this year. Efforts to reach Bobi for a comment were fruitless by press time. But this will surely raise more friction between top singers  and PAM Awards boss Isaac Mulindwa who will see this efforts to sabotage the event.

Last year most of the top musicians shunned the awards ceremony. Watch this space for details.

It is that time of the year again when PAM Awards gets in gear. On Wednesday, Isaac Mulindwa and company launched this year's edition of the awards at Centenary based Club Le' Beaujolais.

The event kicked off as early as 6:00pm with a cocktail party as Chairman organizing committee briefed the guests who included journalists, musicians and the usual suspects-city socialites, about the agenda of this year's event.

Peculiar though was the absence of big names in the industry. Save for Juliana Kanyomozi, the likes of Jose Chameleone, Bobi Wine, Radio & Weasel, Bebe Cool were not present though they received invitations.

You will remember that these same artistes snubbed the PAM Awards ceremony last year. Their absense, however gave the likes of sex oozing Sheeba Karungi, Toolman Kibalama, Lugaflow sensation Mun G, Gift of Kaddo and Leila Kyondo a chance to shine.

By 9:00pm the launch was over as guests started to get to 'know'each other. The main awarding event which is sponsored by Red Pepper, among others, is slated for 5th November 2011 at UMA Hall, Lugogo.

The Pearl of Africa Music Awards are gone. But like all the PAMs ever since they started in early 2000s, there has always been controversy. Again there was disbelief as artistes picked accolades when clearly they did not deserve to win.

Below we bring you the artistes who we believe should have picked awards:

Cindy: Clearly Iryn Namubiru did not deserve the female artiste award. The competition should have been  between Cindy and at least Grace Nakimera but not Iryn. But shockingly she won it.

Ever since Cindy was forced out of Blu3, she has been on a fine run of form with her two songs Ayokyayokya and One and Only have beenrun away success hits. Grace has also been absolutely impressive with her Kawonaawo and Onyambanga.

But somehow, Cindy has enjoyed more success than Grace. Cindy deserved it period.

Nince Henry -Song Writer - Clearly Silver Kyagulanyi has been overtaken by almost all song writers. In fact all the people he was nominated alongside have done far better than him.

Success, Nince Henry were far better than him. For example Nince is responsible for songs like Begombeko by Iryn, Omukwano Gunyuma and Juliana's Guttuke and Kawonawo among others. So why did the award got to Silver Kyagulanyi? Only Isaac Mulindwa knows.

Stamina - Song of the Year: We insist Eddie Kenzo's Stamina song was supposed to be the best song of the year. But shockingly even this song was not nominated. Oh Jesus Christ.

Instead the songs nominated were Omukwano Gunyuma by Samalie Matovu, Jose Chameleone's Basiima Ogenze, Bebe Cool's Kasepiki and Hilderman Amelia. Omukwano Gunyuma won it. How on Earth?

Bobi Wine is a liar. He lied the whole nation in his new song, Ghetto Nazigala that he had quit smoking weed. Yet on Saturday, he was all fired up after smoking sticks of weed at Jinja Road based night spot Club Rouge.

In fact, he had a bitter row with his wife Barbie who was furious with his weed antics. Earlier at PAM Awards, Barbie had lied that Bobi could not attend the awards ceremony because he was out of town in Adjumani for a music tour.

After leaving the Awards ceremony, Barbie knew where her hubby was, at Rouge, where she joined him. However, the pair got a misunderstanding when Bobi started smoking ganja outside Rouge.

The pair later left for Mateos and continued their parting. This bunch of liars....

It looks like the more Ugandan Music Industry becomes lucrative the more the Award Companies come up. The latest new company on the music award catalogue is SWANMA Awards which has joined the bandwagon of other companies like PAM Awards, DIVA Awards, GIVA Awards and Golden Awards.

Upcoming artistes within the East African region are set to be recognized for their efforts following the introduction of Swahili Nations Music Awards due in December at a yet to be confirmed venue in Kampala.

The event will kick off on July 25 with regional tours country wide. "We shall have various talent shows in upcountry towns beginning with Soroti after which 20 finalists will make it to the Grand Awards due in December and the same process will be going on in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and DR Congo

              Elvis and Isaac Mulindwa
Looks like the Pearl of Africa Music Awards confusion will never stop. The Awards Chairman Isaac Mulindwa is contemplating holding last year's (2009) flopped awards in March. The awards were supposed to be held in November last year but following Gordon Wavamuno court case against the awards organizing, a court injunction was issued.


The awards later postponed to February this year only to learn that hey have been pushed to March on a date yet to be set. The mega sponsorship packages for the Awards have already been passed on to the relevant authorities. Zain and East African Breweries are sponsoring the show as usual.

The 2010 edition of the awards will take place in November

The last nail in the Pearl of Africa Music Awards coffin has been hammered. Isaac Mulindwa and co have been thrown out of Workers House where they have been renting an office on the seventh floor in the NSSF owned building.

We are told they have not been paying rent for a long time. On Friday, their offices were closed denying Mulindwa access. His pleas fell on deaf ears. Court is set to make a ruling this month as to whether the awards should be closed or not.

Tycoon Gordon Wavamuno sued the PAM management.

             Isaac Mulindwa (PAM) Awards Chairman
Troubled PAM awards boss Isaac Mulindwa is playing suit games, our snoops have learnt. Word reaching our desk indicates that after being sued by tycoon Wavamuno over the PAM awards dime, Isaac has also sued a viable PAM awards contender identified as Abbey Musinguzi, who is contemplating organizing the awards this season.

Apparently Isaac claims that no one can organize the awards unless the case that was logged against him is resolved by courts of law. But we hear Musinguzi is sticking to his guns and insists that it's Isaac who was sued and not the project.

Most interesting is word on the wire that Abbey is not alone but has the strong back up of London based Ugandan promoter Ssengo and other Tycoons in Uganda.

Twelfth next month has been set as the day when the fate of PAM Awards can be known. It will be on this day that the court would rule whether the awards are to be terminated or go on.

There is a battle between Tycoon Gordon Wavamuno and the Chairman of the awards, Isaac Mulindwa. Wavah wants the licence for the awards be terminated citing poor management of the awards something the sponsors are believing.

Short of that, URA has forgiven Mulindwa over 400 Million and are now demanding just 96 Million from him and his PAM Awards. They have up to this month to pay the 96Million but close pals say he doesn't have the dime. The PAM Awards organizers had accumulated over 500 Million in tax arrears

PAM Awards Mulindwa
By the look of things, we must say bye bye to PAM Awards. Scandals have hit the annual event and fresh info shows Tycoon Gordon Wavamuno has sued Pearl of Africa Music Awards (PAMA) management over money issues. URA has also directed sponsors to channel the entire sponsorship package to URA accounts.

This is because PAM Awards chiefs have not paid taxes since the PAM Awards started six years back. As a result, sponsors Telecommunication companies and East African Breweries Limited under their Bell Lager brand have demanded PAM Chairman Isaac Mulindwa and his group to account for the dime.

He has failed to account for it. Last year alone, ZAIN and EABL pumped shs 2 billion into the event. Shockingly winners have not yet been paid up to now and yet the money they are entitled to is less than 50 Million. The only expensive accolade is artiste of the year at shs 10,000,000/- and the rest are less than 3M each.

We have learnt that since the awards kicked off, tycoon Wavamuno has been funding the events on condition that they refund but this has not been done. ''He is bitter, he had an agreement with the Mulindwa's but they have betrayed him". They have to pay back, " a source told us.

Every company is now shunning the awards and if at all the awards will take place, then that will be on November 7.
