Enock Munhenga famously known as EX-Q from the Military Touch Movement (MTM), walkes away as the biggest winner at the recent Star FM Awards.
The inaugural Star FM Music Awards ceremony took place last Friday night at Zimbali Lifestyle Centre in Greendale. Ex-Q scooped five awards including best male artist, best album, best afro pop song, best collaboration and most played song. The awards came with a total of US$1 000 cash, R10 000 spending money and a trip to South Africa courtesy of headline sponsors Impala Car Rentals.
Ex-Q is one of the few Zimbabwean urban music artists who have experienced longevity and continued success in the music industry. This is largely to the musician’s consistency and hard work. Ex-Q has been on a winning streak dropping hit after hit from Nzenza to Tsvigiri. His success is also credited to his unique sound which appeals across all age groups.
