However Singer Spice Diana is angry with the organizers of the inaugural Janzi Awards 2021 after she failed to win any award, leaving empty handed.

After losing big time as award winners were announced at the Kololo Independence Grounds in Kampala, the ‘Anti Kale’ singer blamed her loss on the little time given to the public and the panel of judges (academy) to choose winners.
“For the Janzi Awards in particular, what was the rush to organise an award ceremony in two weeks. What was the intention of the event?”
Although she half-heartedly congratulated the winners, Spice Diana questioned the criteria used to select the best in the industry.
