The 2018 Groove Awards with Safaricom marks 13 years of historic achievements in the gospel music industry. Groove Awards with Safaricom continues to be the region’s Premier Gospel Award ceremony, and has always sought to promote and connect Gospel artists across Africa and foster unity among industry stakeholders, all the while raising the quality and standards of the local music industry.
This year’s involvement of the public was driven by a strong desire to give greater ownership and participation to music fans across the country. Groove’s key theme this year is rebuild- and it seeks to call for unity of purpose a message that our culture and society so desperately needs. It’s based on Nehemiah 2:17-18.
