It is a new dawn for Zimbabwean Hip Hop Awards founder and chief executive officer Aldrian “Beefy” Harrison as he has been appointed to join the esteemed team of African Hip Hop Awards (AHA) as Africa Hip Hop Deputy Commercial and Operations.

In an interview with BusinessMail Harrison said he is excited about the appointment and honoured to work with Africa’s elite and content creators.
“I am a very passionate guy about what I do and I feel I will contribute immensely to the Africa hip hop awards brand.
