The HiPipo Music Awards 2020 edition has been postponed. The development was announced by Innocent Kawooya, the CEO of HiPipo on Friday.

According to Kawooya, the awards were postponed because one of their key suppliers could not deliver on their obligations.

“The award ceremony has been postponed owing to unexpected happenings that have made a key supplier unable to complete and later on ship major project necessities on time,” said Innocent Kawooya in a statement to award stakeholders.

The award ceremony which was slated for March 14, 2020, at the Kampala Serena Hotel has since been pushed to an indefinite time.
