Rapper Mudiwa Hood was embarrassed at The Style Oracle Awards held at Casa Mia in Avondale on Wednesday when he volunteered to receive an award on behalf of Jah Prayzah who won the Most Stylish video award for the track he did with Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz, and accidentally broke the award on stage.
Jah Prayzah was not at the ceremony as he was in South Africa to ink a deal for an upcoming collaboration with other big African musicians. This is not the first time Mudiwa has received an award without the recipients consent as in February this year he collected Trevor Dongo’s Zimbabwe Music Awards award which resulted in Trevor’s camp criticising Mudiwa for rushing to take the award without their blessings when they had a representative for that role.
The Herald reports that Jah Prayzah was not reachable for comment yesterday, but sources said he had accepted Mudiwa’s apology. Organisers of the award have since replaced the broken gong.
