The just concluded Hipipo awards continue to divide opinion. There is even a suggestion that they should be renamed “high people” or Bebe Cool awards since they have turned out a PR machinery for Bebe Cool.

The ire stems from the fact that Bebe Cool and Sheebah won some awards that weren’t merited at the awards held at Kampala Serena Hotel last Saturday.
Moles have also heard grumbles that some money could have exchanged hands although we couldn’t independently verify those claims.
The latest onslaught, which is likely to throw a spanner in the works of the HiPipo awards, is from Andy Music the manager of the fast rising trio if B2C that comprises Peterson Ssali, Julius Kasagga and Richard Mugisha.

The trio who sung “Tokigeza” walked away empty handed after being placed in a wrong category.
Now the group’s management claims the award organisers ask for bribes from artistes to be crowned winners.
“This goes to all award organisers in Uganda, please try to be true. Stop asking money from artists to be nominated or awarded. You’re lying to the whole nation. All those winners who bribed to be awarded should be embarrassed. It will not last for long,” they grumbled

After B2C, who were nominated for the Best Music Group award lost to Northern Uganda’s Pine Avenue5, their management has further denounced the awards and revealed they will no longer be a part of them in future.
“Ugandans wake up to all those fake award organisers. We want real awards and not business projects disguised as awards,” Andy quarrelled.

When contacted, Bebe Cool declared he was above mediocrity and wouldn’t waste his breath on upstarts like B2C management.
