Roil BAA organisers accept Oskido’s rejection.
Oskido, the Kalawa Jazmee supremo, was nominated in a new RoilBAA category of Outstanding Arts Personality from Outside of Bulawayo alongside Winky D and Jah Prayzah. The Roil Bulawayo Arts Awards (RoilBAA) organisers have said they respect South African DJ Oskido’s decision to reject their nomination.
However, his record label, Kalawa Jazmee, felt he did not qualify for the gong as he was not Zimbabwean and as such, they rejected the nomination. Speaking on behalf of the RoilBAA organising committee, Raisedon Baya, said they would abide by the decision of Oskido’s record label.

“Oskido has every right to opt out of the nomination list since the awards are merely a celebration and not a force matter,” Baya said.
