Malaysian based Zimbabwean promoter, Teemak will give 300USD each to all Star FM award recipients.
The amount will be handed to every artist who won at the 2nd edition of the musical awards in various categories.
The event took place at Stake House in Harare this Saturday.
Tawona Oswell Chipunza also known as Teemak, has partnered with the station and ensured that every artist who got an accolade is set to receive monetary prize in US Dollars.
The award recipients will receive their monetary prizes this week.
The bussinessman was qouted in the press statement revealing his aspiration of giving away the prize money.
” My goal in giving prize money is to acknowledge the efforts of the artists….we can never match what they themselves have invested in their careers but its a tangible step in the right direction,” Teemak said.
In addition, the awards organisers expressed that the purpose for having the event was to channel sponsorship for the artists.
“One of the key learning points from last was the need not only give recognition through a statuette but to give a financial reward, albeit a small one, in recognition of the artist’s efforts,” said their spokesperson.
Lastly, in their statement, Star Fm confirmed the money each of the artist is expected to grab away.
“Each category winner will receive a prize money of USD300,” they noted in their press statement.
The awards were established last year by Star Fm as a sign to celebrate outstanding musicians in their radio station.
