Sungura musician Mark Ngwazi has expressed disappointment after he failed to win a single award at the 21st National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA) held on Saturday in Harare.
However, Ngwazi said his main objective is not to win awards but to produce entertaining music for his fans.
Speaking to H-Metro, the Njanja Express leader said he was happy and appreciates the NAMA nomination despite not winning the People’s Choice Award. He said:
Yes, I wanted to win the award, but for me, it’s never about winning, but staying true.
The recognition itself is already a big win. It was really good to be recognised among the best.
My main objective when writing music is to be true to myself and give people the music they want.
The NAMA nomination was Ngwazi’s first since the beginning of his career.
He said he is currently in the studio working on a new album set for release later this year.
Ngwazi also said he is currently working on a number of videos for his latest album “Nharo Nezvine Nharo”.
