Their social networking platforms speak volumes of them as they run a Facebook page which they trades as The Zimbo Jam with more than 32 000 likes and 10 000 followers on twitter which they trend with their twitter handle @zimbojam.
They have got an up and running with the country’s award-winning lifestyle, arts & culture website (www.zimbojam.com). The site receives frequent updates to keep their followers with latest and fresh news in the arts and entertainment industry.
Unfortunately, for one of the leading entertaining blog in the country, we would have expected much in pictures from them or short video clips to quench our thirst of the loudly promoted event.
They also have not shared with us their own moment while they lifted the prestigious trophy but rather only shared Jah prayzah`s photo, the man of the moment.
Here is more of the event on other 31 categories contested from the zimbojam website
