Groove Awards 2017 Nominees & Winners List

The Groove Awards is a Kenyan annual Gospel award. The winners are chosen by the public. In 2013 there were 29 different categories, including gospel performers, DJs, radio and TV shows, and producers. The award’s coverage has spread to include other East African countries, including Rwanda. It is sponsored by Safaricom and MoSound Events.

The first Groove Awards were presented in 2004, at a small gathering. It has since grown to be a live-broadcast event courtesy of media sponsors. To date, more than 1,200 artists/groups have been nominated and 270 Groove statuettes presented to exemplary Gospel musicians in Kenya and the larger East African region. The 8th awards ceremony, held on 1 June 2013, was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta. The Groove Awards 2014 was presented on 1 June 2014, at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre in Nairobi, Kenya under the theme, ‘Let Your Light Shine'(LYLS), derived from Matthew 5:16.
