After waking up to the shock of his successful album “Chawama/John Howard” not getting any nomination in this year’s Kwacha Music Awards, Jae Cash has withdrawn his nomination and participation in this year’s edition.
The rapper’s album did not get a nomination in the Album of the year category despite getting over 7 million streams since it’s release. Only two of the seven nominated albums have more streams than Jae Cash‘s Chawama/John Howard.

Its with deep regret that I wish to announce my withdrawal from this years Kwacha MUSIC Awards.
Let me firstly thank the management and organisers of the award show and for once again according me the opportunity to be nominated.
However, my heart isn’t at peace looking at a list which i feel is not a true representation of actual facts on the ground especially in the category of Best Album of The year. Its my sencere hope that in future, The organisers will take a much more appropriate approach when selecting nominees in order to fully and wholly recorgnise the hard work the players are putting in (it’s too much unrecognized talent being left out that need a platform like yours out there).
It is also my duty to sharpen up my field of work if i feel things aren’t being done right & clearly
I believe in building the Zambian music industry therefore i will not be involved in anything that i feel alters that.
👏🏾I know my boy will bring home the trophies🏆
#Team apailiso I’ll leave that in your hands ✊🏽
