About Press Bpabeio Awards

Organized by media personality Omusawo Tintah, Press Bpabeio awards are held every after two months and each time, an appreciation award is given out to a person or company that has exceptionally stood out in uplifting Ugandan music.

This edition saw Sonde-based Century Property Real Estate company win the appreciation award for building a Celebrity Villa along Bombo Road where local artists can purchase land cheaply.

“Ugandan music has changed over time, we need to also adjust and cope with the change. Lately, an artiste will get a hit but before you know it, the song is no longer a hit after three months. So we sat down and thought why not appreciate them when they are still hot unlike the rest of the awards that happen once a year,” said Omusawo Tintah stated while handing out the awards.
