The Seh Calaz-Soul Jah Love battle for supremacy continues as the two youthful artistes compete against each other in many categories of the Zim dancehall Awards set for March 6.

They are contesting in Best Male Artiste, Best Collaboration and Best Vocalist categories of the tightly contested awards.

Seh Calaz has the most nominations, sitting in six categories while nemesis Soul Jah Love is vying for five gongs.

The inclusion of the People’s Choice Awards to be held on the night makes the race more interesting.

In total, 28 awards will be given on the night as the organisers seem to have gone all out in trying to include “everyone”.

This is seen in the inclusion of categories like Best Dressed Artiste, Most Disciplined Artiste, Best Artiste Manager, Best Colabo Riddim, Best Video Medley and Best Zim Dancehall Online among others.
