I’m sooooo proud of Channel O and South Africa for putting up such a great show!
I think South Africa is such a great country for real. I have promised myself to visit Cape Town, SA sometime next year.
Nigeria did us very proud by winning all those awards! Storm Records was also in the building with a very energetic group performance.
Thanks to all bellanaija readers for voting and congrats to all the artistes that won!
In my opinion, they really deserve the awards and accolades!
What do you think about the awards? Did the winners deserve it? Why so you think Nigeria dominated this year?
Have a great week, hope you had a great weekend and make sure u let us know what you think!
