5 Reasons Why @AWA_Khiwe Has Us In Awe #ZimHipHop

I first heard about this MC through her signing with AMTNT, Don’t forget she’s also nominated for Best Female and Hustle of the Year in the 2016 Zim Hip-Hop Awards.

[feature]AWA (African Women Arise)

I first heard about this MC through her signing with AMTNT, Don’t forget she’s also nominated for Best Female and Hustle of the Year in the 2016 Zim Hip-Hop Awards. If you didn't know who she was, I hope you will by the end of this article

That’s a lot to take in, but she’s done quite a lot this year, not just as a female but as an artist in general. In true hip-hop form, she is an activist and this resulted in her brief detention due to a #ThisFlag protest in Bulawayo. 

For those still wondering what her name means AWA is an acronym for African Women Arise, although it was derived from her birth name Awakhiwe. It does seem that she’s become the personification of her name.

This is a small list dedicated to her success.

1. She was also on the controversial MTV Base South Top MC List

Oh yes she was on the list, with the credentials to back it up. The only female to make it on the list too, that says a lot....

2. Award-winning doccie



Oh yeah the documentary made about her by Max Thurlow won an award for the Best Film Inspired by Arts & Humanities Research. Ichoooo!

Check out the award-winning documentary below

3. Winning With No Album To Her Name Yet



Yes, she is yet to release an album but that doesn't stop her. Currently working on her album Voice of Women, set to be released on a date to be advised, this girl is doing it for herself. That's something to think about if you procrastinate a lot. The time is now!

4. Performing at the inaugural Urban Africa Festival in Germany




Now a certyified jetsetter, after heading to the UK for the Voices of Revolution event, she performed at the inaugural Urban Africa Festival in Germany alongside her homeboy Cal_Vin, Cassper Nyovest among others. 

You can check out the radio interview they did there below

5. Her significant other is also nominated in the Best Underground category


If I recall correctly her significant other is also nominated in the 2016 Zim Hip-Hop Awards in the Best Underground Artist category. She just can’t stop winning. 

Psyko Tektonic is one of the 2016 Zim Hip-Hop Awards nominees for the Best Underground Artist category.
