The list comprises of many Zimbabweans from different fields such as music, arts,television personalities, church leaders, journalists, politicians among others.
This year the list comes as a surprise as politicians, mainly form the ruling party Zanu PF, are dominating unlike in previous years where church leaders and musicians dominated the top 10.
In the list, Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) church leader Walter Magaya and United Family International Church leader Emmanuel Makandiwa are on third and forth position and previously there were First and Second respectively.
Pastor Evan Mawarire has also been named in the top 10 where he is comfortably sitting on number 9.
High flying musician Jah Prayzah is on Second position while radio presenters Kudzanai Violet Gwara (KVG) and Pathisan Sibanda come in at number 35 and 58 respectively.
However, the list has been received a bit of skepticism and is facing backlash as some people believe the likes of Winky D and other upcoming artists could have easily made it on on the list in place of the likes of Pokello
Other notable inclusions on the list are Zimdancehall personalities like Etharton B ,PTK and Souljah love made it into the top 100 while sportscaster Barry Manandi also finds his name in the top 50.
