This year's National Art Merit Awards Facebook Live broadcast announcement of nominees was abandoned following power outage.

The organisers were broadcasting live from the Reps Theatre in Harare where the award ceremony will be held on February 17 when the broadcasting was disrupted by power outage.

The ceremony had the chairman of the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ), organisers of the event and the chairperson of Nama, Professor Ruby Magosvongwe who was supposed to announce the nominees.

Professor Magosvongwe read her speech spelling out the adjudication process which was an intense seven week process. In the speck Prof Magosvongwe said the process was based on submitted entries, monitors' reports of both individuals and institutions who keep an eye on excelling artistes throughout the year.

Prof Magosvongwe thereafter started reading the list of nominees and when she was half way, there was a black out, then a message told viewers that there was a power outage and broadcasting was to resume shortly.

However after an hour, the full list was published on the NACZ Facebook page and thereafter shared by people on social media.

The music award looks like the accolade to look forward to as Outstanding Song will be a battle between Soul Jah Love's Pamamonya Ipapo, Jah Prayzah's Ndini Ndamubata and Ammara Brown's Akiliz.
