The MTV Europe Music Awards as its name suggest has been for the longest time a Western Affair. However African Music has been so irresistible that now we have a few nominees for the Awards. Categories like Cultural Icons have Beyonce and Beiber each having five nominations and Adelle following up with four nominations.
On the Best African Act Category we have some of our Favourites. Ladies’ Man Ali Kiba is on this list. Having spooned us a collabo with Sauti Sol, some Chekecha Cheketua and Aje. We all must admit Ali is quite a sensation. Counting exactly a decade this year since this cutie started serving some good smooth music to us. Congratulations Ali.
He is not the only nominee, the West Africa is also representing with Melo Melo Hip-Hop Artist Olamide. He also got us moving to his groove and we all know how much love we have for Naija Music. Still in the West, Wizkid is also nominee for Best African Act, having had everyone dance to Azonto, at just 26, he is already placing his footprint on the global map. All the best Nigeria.
South Africa is never to be forgotten and just the treat you need, Black Coffee will definitely keep you awake. As a record producer and DJ since 1995, this might just be another award he adds to his trophy collection. 25 year old Casper Nyovest closes this list also young, talented and sensational. Go kick ass South Africa.
We wish our own the very best and whoever bags this one; just know all of them are still smoking to me.
