THE Zimbabwe Music Awards has introduced a new online submission system for artists who are to submit their works for the awards which to be held in October this year. In an interview with this publication, ZIMA Founder and Chairman Joseph Nyadzayo said the move is meant to be in line with technology as well as to allow musicians to submit their entries from anywhere as long as they can have internet access.
Zima invites submissions
“We have decided to introduce a new online submission system in an effort to embrace technology. The new system will allow musicians to register from wherever they are in the country or even if they are on tour anywhere in the world they are able to submit their entries,” he said.


He pointed out that besides advantages of the system technologically; the new system is transparent for artists.
“The system is firstly, very transparent. It allows us to keep track of every entry without any being lost,” he added.

He also highlighted that ZIMA has not totally abandoned the traditional way of submitting entries saying for those who do not have access to internet manual forms are available for them at the ZIMA offices.

ZIMA started in 2003 as an annual awards ceremony to acknowledge and honour musical excellence and creativity it also provided a high profile and multi faceted celebration of the rich cultural diversity of local music, but as a result of the economic challenges the country faced for the past years, the last awards last edition were held in 2007.

Despite the seven year break, organisers of the event have promised a razzmatazz event with the Recording Industry of South Africa which is behind the South Africa Music Awards promising to assist this year’s awards so that they become successful.

The environment was emotional and most people in the audience fought back tears when Ammara Brown, the stepdaughter to the late mbira exponent Chiwoniso Maraire, chronicled a touching account of their relationship, describing her stepmother as a cultural icon. The songstress said there were many facets to Chiwoniso.

Ammara’s emotional account
“Most people knew her as an artist, but there was more to her. She was beautiful and her ‘light’ did not end on stage but would continue to shine.
“Through Chiwoniso I learnt that mbira is not a normal instrument, but it is very powerful as she was able to prove that no matter where she went in the world, she was able to effortlessly and selflessly share that ability and gift,” said Ammara.

She said this during a discussion on “Tribute to Chiwoniso Maraire” at Book Café recently titled “Chiwoniso Maraire: The Rebel Woman,The Flame Lily of Zim Music”.
Ammara almost broke down as she poured out her heart.

“Every time I spent with her, I felt warmness and I felt the connection to the instrument after having learnt it from an expert of such a kind.
“More importantly even long she is gone, the mbira is my step, it helps me to find the artist that I am. That I have to be so distinctively

Zimbabwean no matter where I go and for me this defines her as a cultural icon and she should be remembered.”
Professor Fred Zindi described Chiwoniso as a national cultural heritage.


“In her short but rich musical career, she became a national cultural heritage itself. As Stephen Chifunyise puts it, ‘she performed the most distinctive performing arts heritage of the Shona people clearly as a disciplined and appointed custodian of a mbira heritage with a mature handling of its intricate spirit’.

“In her stage performances, Chiwoniso did not only reminiscence her late father’s (Dumisani Maraire) passion for mbira music but also his respect for that cultural heritage which she rejuvenated in English,” said Prof Zindi.

Famous poet performer, Chirikure Chirikure defined Chiwoniso in other dimensions as an individual, human being, as an artist and as a friend. Chirikure said he was very fortunate to be part of the Maraire family experience in the early 90s.

“After our performance in Maputo with Chiwoniso in the early 2000s a military officer invited us to his house. The request was for Chiwoniso to play a solo mbira to his daughter in her mother’s hands because the father appreciated Chiwoniso’s music.

“I have seen Chiwoniso in so many different situations and reactions in so many ways but in that particular experience I saw a completely different Chiwoniso from the Chiwoniso I have known all my life.

“She was in between tears, smiling and singing. She said ‘I am not a spirit medium’ but in a number of ways I could feel there was something in her which was beyond a natural being,” said Chirikure.

The event included premiering of her videos, a slide show of her pictures on stage and trips with friends.
It ended with a musical concert where a number of musicians including her own band Vibe Culture performed.

BMW is recalling about 1.6 million 3-Series vehicles produced between May 1999 and August 2006 worldwide. They will replace passenger-side front airbags made by Takata Corp because the inflators could break apart during deployment and injure passengers.

The recall is an extension of last year's recall of 240,000 cars globally for the same issue, he said.

The air bag supplied by Japan's Takata has also affected Honda Motor Co, Toyota Motor Corp, Nissan Motor Co, Mazda Motor Corp, Fuji Heavy Industries-owned Subaru, Mitsubishi, Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Chrysler brand.

This latest recall will affect about 574,000 in the United States, about 450,000 in Germany and about 189,000 in the United Kingdom.
