OBERT Chari has been awarded $5 000 after his smash hit Mebo was voted Best Local Artiste Music Video by social media users late last month.

The awards were run by a newly-established local social media organisation, Duce, as part of its promotional strategies.

"I am humbled by the support I got from the fans. I cannot even thank them enough for being always on my side," Chari said.
The ZCC Chegutu Hakireni Stars front man donated $500 from his winnings to charity.

"As a norm, I gave 10 percent of the money to the Zion Christian Church's humanitarian organisation called Rugare Community Relief Services (Rucos) as I believe charity begins at home," he said.

Chari is a member of ZCC. In July, the Mebo video, posted on Youtube in April last year, clocked a million hits, increasing chances of the singer getting more revenue from the social media platform.

A video creator can earn about US$2 000 for every million views on Youtube.

Meanwhile, the former Midlands State University student hogged showbiz limelight last year following the release of the hit song off the studio album Mariyambutsa.

The popular musical project earned him an award — Best Upcoming Artiste — this year courtesy of Radio Zimbabwe Coca-Cola Top 50 as well as a number of nominations in local awards.
Chari is now one of the most sought-after musicians in the country. He has shared the stage with top musicians such as Alick Macheso and Suluman Chimbetu among others, thanks to the popularity of Mebo.

Chari was shocked by the massive response his song got from the market considering the album was recorded in the small town of Chegutu where music promoters and public media are hard to come by.

"I never marketed my music aggressively but to my surprise the song Mebo simply got the attention of fans from all walks of life. It just went viral on social media," he said.
