Yesterday, PAM awards organizing committee proved its organizational abilities as they were able to hold a remarkable event. If we are to go with attendance, 2010 PAM awards grand finale was a big success.  Bebe Cool ran the show in his absence as he was able to break the jinx and won Artist of the year plus Album of the year and Reggae artist of the year awards.

The stage, lighting and sound system matched well with the expectations of many of the fans. The fans were entertained by several artists. These included Alpha from Rwanda, Navio, OS, Samalie Matovu, Keko, Judith Babirye, Cindy and Iryn Namubiru.

J Kazoora, Straka Mwezi and Roger Mugisha were the MCs of the night. Kazoora moved through the audience, Roger Mugisha was at the VIP stage while Straka Mwezi worked from 30,000 ticket section. This team did not disappoint; Straka ensured that the fans enjoyed to maximum.

Samalie Matovu was the surprise winner of the night. Her Mukwano Gunyuma single won song of the year accolade beating Hilderman’s Amelia, Bebe Cool’s Kasepiki and Doctor Jose Chameleone’s Basima Ogenze.

Many of this year’s winners disappointed their fans as they never picked their awards. Apart from Bebe Cool and Chameleone who are in America and Europe respectively, many of the absent stars lacked strong reasons. Kenzo, Rabadaba, Gerald Kiwewa, Pastor Wilson Bugembe, Aziz Azion and Goodlyfe duo of Radio and Weasel were among the winners who were only represented. Even Judith Babirye who was among the performers sent an agent to pick her award for gospel single of the year. I think most of these absent artistes would have done better than sending representatives.

Nevertheless, PAM 2010 set the pace for all the other upcoming awards. Here is the list of the 2010 PAM awards winners.
