Nox wins ZIMAA award

HARARE - Talented urban grooves musician Enoch “Nox” Guni won his first ever award at the Zimbabwe Music and Arts Awards (Zimaa) held over the weekend in the United Kingdom.

Nox won the Touring Artiste of the Year Award.

The artiste said he was pleased with the award and hopes to have more achievements in the future.

“It is an honour, it took me 10 years to get my first ever award. I am praying to God that he makes me achieve my fullest potential and I know that this is just the beginning,” he said.

It was a tight competition as he was competing against Oliver Mtukudzi, Macheso and Winky De.

Nox has been in the industry for long and hogged the limelight in 2003, with his song Iwe Maria.

He went quiet over the years but started making waves in 2010 with the song Wenera with Maskiri and Chagwa Black.

He has been churning hits that were eagerly received by the public. He has managed to secure a huge fan base.

Nox said it took endurance and patience and he recommended these to all artistes.
 
“My advice to fellow artistes is that be patient as good things come to those who wait. It took Oliver Mtukudzi a lot of years and albums before he became the king. It took me 10 years to get my first award.

Patience is a virtue and never lose hope because where there is a will there is a way,” he said.

The Ndinonyara hit-maker said he is currently working on new projects.

“I have two albums due for release next year including 8th Wonder and Africa’s Best, I am taking things to a whole new level,”he said.

Nox bagged two awards that night with the second one being Event of the Year, which he won jointly with Jah Prayzah for their September show.

He has six albums to his name including Wandipengesa, Rhythm and Blues, Kana Musipo, Chapter 3, Music Love and Me, Tisu Tine Yese and Classic Love Songz.

Nox runs his own studio called Ice “n” Roses and he recently signed a deal with local studio, Heshi Mfeshi whereby he is set to promote some of its artistes to reach a wider market.

He also signed songbird Diana Samkange on the same deal last month.

He did collaborations with different local and South African artistes over the past two years.

He featured Tererai, Trevor Dongo, Decibel, Cindy and Ex Q, Chiwoniso and a South African rapper called Mucci on the songs.
