Back 2 church edition: Groove Award Nominees 2017 and how you can vote for them

Quite the red carpet affair, the annual Groove Awards is back! This year’s theme is dubbed “Back 2 Church” in the quest to encourage ministers of the word to direct their initiatives and projects to the church.

This year’s nomination happened after a retreat during which the gospel ministers, inclusive of radio presenters, artistes and pastors came together for a common cause and in a bid to encourage them to keep spreading the word as they are the face of gospel ministry in Kenya.

This year sees better voting channels as audiences now stand the chance to vote for their favorite artistes by sending the artiste code, on text by sending the name "Groove" followed by the nominee code to 811 then follow the instructions to complete the voting process, on the groove site http://groove.co.ke whose interface is quite attractive in comparison to previous years.

With voting commencing at or around 10:00:01 AM on 2nd May 2017 and ending 12:00:01 MIDNIGHT 31st May 2017 (the "General Voting Period") for all eligible voting categories. The total number of votes submitted during the Voting Period for the "Nominees" in each of the eligible categories will be tabulated by the Groove Audit partner ahead of the Gala night.
