It’s always a good thing to see Kenyans winning in life, isn’t it? Especially after all the tiring things happening in our country on a daily. Kenyan personalities have put our country on the map once again after ten of our very own were nominated for the upcoming 2018 Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards (ASFAs) in Uganda.
Among the ten nominees is media personality Amina Abdi who was nominated in the category of most stylish female celebrities in Africa alongside Namibian socialite Dilish Mathews, South African TV personality Nomzamo Mbatha, Ghanaians Nana Akua Addo and Zynnell Lydia.
Award-winning Kenyan Afro-pop group Sauti Sol bagged two nominations: the first one as the most stylish male artists in Africa,
The second one for the Most Fashionable African Video for their song “Short and Sweet” featuring Nyashinski.
“Noma ni” crooner Octopizzo also got a nomination for the most stylish African male artist and will be going up against fellow Kenyans Sauti sol, Congolese Fally Ipupa, Nigerian Runtown, and South African Ricky Ricky.
