Penjani Kalua Formerly known as Fredokiss has rebuffed the upcoming UMP Awards by telling his fans not to vote for him in his nominated categories but the new and up-coming artists who have done a lot and show big effort this year as a way of promoting them.
This was mentioned on his Facebook page yesterday morning, he also mentioned some of the artists that he thinks they deserve to get the awards.
“For UMP Awards, I request that please don’t vote for me. There are so many Upcoming artists who have done a great Job this year like Wikise, Seven o More, Toast, Eli and many others. Please please instead of voting for me, vote for one of these, thank you for nominating me in 4 categories and for always showing me Love but Zinthuzi tizigawana. Others should be awarded too.” the post read.
Fredokiss name appeared in four categories; Best Live Act, Best Hip Hop, Artist of the Year, and Collaboration of the Year. Having won big in last year’s episode.
In some comments regarding to the post; Mwiza Chavura said that’s the spirit, even ump needs to start seeing this, they are losing value cause they just repeat the same names, there are a lot of other things a human can do in life and fredokiss realize that. Some did not agree to what he thought was a right thing to do.
Even if it means losing in all the categories, he will not go home empty handed as he will get this year’s Humanitarian award. This award is newly introduced.
