About the Awards

We’re tired of award ceremonies that “celebrate East African artists” that focus on a select few musicians, some of whom mostly make jingles. Sondeka Awards EA is about giving YOU the chance to vote for the East African artist you think are AMAZING. Not who your radio station or weekend magazine says you should love but the musicians, poets, visual artists and other creatives who you think deserve to have their work recognised. This year Sondeka Awards EA is open to nominations from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda and will continue to expand!
