    As a Nigerian, I would have applauded unfortunately I can’t. Almost all the nominated videos are all shot and directed in SA hence what credit do we get?

    proud to be kenyan/African, but i think they should check out other rising new artists from all over africa not the same people winning each year.kenyans good singers like NAMELESS and ALI KIBA. i hope next year they are nominated for something because they make really good music. i don’t the “theme” for this years’ africa video music awards works because they didn’t look hard enough to find these young talents from ALL over Africa. i hope they do a better job next time

    Just a lil something i noticed, shouldn’t awards have a time limit, where are there videos shot two years ago on these lists, shouldn’t there a lil bit of freshness so you encourage the newer artists and efforts…this is a weird award, I live in the US and quite involved in these processes…this is outdated and not that relevant to us. Thank you.
