Runners this year for this prestigious recognition are Sabastian Magacha, Rev TT Chivaviro, Janet Manyowa, Michael Mahendere and Carol Nyakudya.

The International Gospel Artist award recognises Zimbabwean musicians across international boundaries. Nominees will have demonstrated outstanding musicianship covering songwriting, instrumentation and singing (recorded and live performances), and have shown outstanding musicianship in taking Gospel music to another level.

Previous winners of this award include Fungisai (2017), Tembalami (2016), Takesure Zamar Ncube (2015) and Zimpraise (2014).

First presented in 2010, the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards, an initiation of Conrad Mwanza, is a celebration of talent, art, business, expression and achievement in the Zimbabwean community throughout a very broad spectrum of genres. The Z.A.A  seek to recognise Zimbabweans who have pushed the limits against all odds to raise the Zimbabwean flag high and do both themselves and their fellow countrymen proud.

It has become one of the most important events in the African community.
