In the last two weeks, Azawi has collected a total of eight awards and, like her fans, she is loving the smell of early success.
On 1st November, 2019, Priscilla Zawedde a.k.a Azawi was officially signed as a Swangz Avenue artiste after several years hustling underground.
Her recruitment raised a few eyebrows especially because not much had been heard of her in the music circles until that point.
It took the Swangz Avenue CEO Julius Kyazze just a few studio sessions to spot Azawi as the next big thing in Ugandan music and two years later, it is reality.
With her very first song Quinamino, Azawi won over several hearts. Her voice, lyricism, and humble personality did the magic.
She continued to make her point, showcasing her vast talents on the 5-track Lo Fit E.P which was released on 28th February, 2020.
It is easy to fall in love with the person that she is – and if not, the charm of her artistry will definitely have you hooked and dragged all the way through the sea of her uniqueness.
On 9th October, 2021, Azawi released the ‘African Music’ album and with it, she has proved whoever doubted her talent wrong.
It’s hard to pick a favorite song on the album and that’s because they are all worth a listen. She really gave it her all.
For all that hard work, the bubbly 25-year-old has been recognized with 8 accolades from two big Ugandan awards events.
List of awards Azawi has won so far:
Janzi Awards 2021
- Female Artist of the Year
- Outstanding Album of the Year – African Music
- Outstanding Afro Beat/Pop Artist
Buzz Teenz Awards 2021
- Artist of the Year
- Teenz Female Artist of the Year
