Speaking to H-Metro, Blexs Gyver said they have been affected by Covid-19.
“Lockdown was the main problem which affected us and lack of sponsorship limited us to do other things.
“I am sure next we will improve and make it big because of the love as well as the support I am receiving.
“I would like to thank each and every one who helped us behind the scenes.
“Special thanks go to Dollarbill for setting that beautiful stage and all the presenters.
“Congratulations to all the winners, God bless you, Zim dancehall will never die, we will keep fighting and pushing for better awards.
“We are going to hold a ceremony where we will invite all the winners to collect their awards on a date which we are yet to set,” he said.
H-Metro’s Entertainment Reporter Praise Masvosva scooped the award of Best Blogger/Publisher.
