Chaguo La Teeniez (CHAT) 201I...The Losers & The Winners

I know you care about awards. I don’t.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t just like the Kenyan awards- ooh and several others.

Why? Because they can’t, they haven’t and probably will never pass the test of time - if not- on the very least- credibility tests.

Occasionally though I like to read, watch, hear or Google about awards.

If I have ever written about them- which I highly doubt- is because I care about you not them.

Like I said, once in a while, I like to know about who wins what, where and on what category.

Do I follow any awards in particular? Yes I do.

And it’s just one. The Nobel Peace Prize -and a little bit- just a little bit- The CNN Journalism Awards.

The rest – be it football, BET, Grammy, Groove, CHAT, MTV/MAMA or whatever kind of award there is- I don't care.

However, for the purposes being knowledgeable or keeping abreast with current news and for purposes of meeting social obligations, i do follow.

Why you may ask again? Because all of them are totally stage-managed, money influenced, sponsor- driven and politically influenced.

I am very certain though you wish to know who won what during the just concluded CHAT Awards.

Without wasting so much time here is a summary of those who won.

Daddy Owen topped the list of winners of the 2011 Chaguo La Teeniez (CHAT) Awards held on Saturday 16th April 2011 at the Carnivore Grounds.

The gospel artiste bagged Teeniez Male Artiste as well as Teeniez Gospel Artiste. Gospel group M.O.G and Mr Seed scooped the Teeniez Gospel Song category.

Teeniez Live Performer award was deservedly awarded to Juliani. BMF, favourites to win the Teeniez New Artiste category lost out to Lady B.

Juliani and Daddy Owen were the only Gospel artistes who performed as politicians Fidel Odinga, Martha Karua, and Gideon 'Sonko' Mbuvi joined in the celebrations.

Radio presenter Joey Muthengi and Anthony 'Neo-Soul' Mwangi were the MCs of the show.

Now that you have seen who was nominated and who won, can I ask you a question?

Good, did you see any nomination for KBC program or even an actor or actress from the many programs run by the station? I guess your answer is No! And you are right.

There wasn’t . Why? I have no idea.

I find it odd that of all the programs run by KBC no teenager watches to warrant a nomination.

Can someone/the CHAT organizers sincerely say that there was no nomination at all for KBC?

Second question, where are the majority of teenagers? Is it in the urban setting? Or in the rural setting? Those are good questions but we all don’t have answers.

Summarily though, let’s assume you asked me who should have won or who deserved what they won, here is what I think.

Daddy Owen, Juliani, Churchill, Mac Donald Mariga, VJ Kalonje, M.O.G. & Mr.Seed
deserved the awards, but Avril? Tanya among the many didn’t? Where is the talent? And who the hell is Lady B?
