Preparations for the third edition of Pachedu Awards hosted by Simba Group International Limited are at aanced stage. The awards will honour musicians, socialites and celebrities who have excelled in their line of duty, bringing relevance to the community. The prestigious ceremony will be held in London and Harare on February 28.

The Harare version will be only the presentation while the actual ceremony will be in London.

For the Harare leg, the night will be hosted by Platinum Entertainment at The House of Sphinx, Cresta Oasis Hotel.

Platinum Entertainment boss Spencer Madziya has confirmed the latest development. “We work in partnership with Simba Group International. Just like what happens on a normal awards ceremony even the just ended Grammy’s had the same scenario, whereby they presented awards to winners who won’t be there but on the same day. It is a case of venues because some of the winners might not have managed to travel. The main ceremony will be at the Quality Skyline Hotel in Luton,” he said.

He said they will present the actual award that is being presented in UK.

The other organiser, Millicent Chanetsa, said this year is bigger and better.

“This year we have increased our categories to include social media contributions and community icons as these have immensely ‘in-putted’ in the shaping of the Zimbabwean media as we grasp the internet era that is fast gripping all walks of life,” she said.
