Channel O Music Video Awards 2010 Nominees Announced! Find Out Who Made The Cut

Published

 on

The list of nominees of the 2010 Channel O Music Video Awards has been released and there aren’t many surprises on the list. Nigerian stars MI, Sasha, D’Banj, Wande Coal, Banky W, Da Grin, 2Face, Djinee, P-Square and Naeto C picked up nominations while Newcomers such as Mo’Cheddah, Tolumide and General Pype were also recognized. Kenny St Brown received her first ever Channel O award nomination for her video with Da Grin ‘Turn Me Around’. Outside the shores of Nigeria, African stars including Nameless, Dama Do Bling, HHP, Becca, Samini and Lizha James were also nominated.

According to Yolisa Phahle, Channel Director of M-Net’s Special Interest Channels, “What’s especially pleasing this year is the reach of the nominees… It’s great to see a country like Angola make its presence felt and there is a strong showing by artists from Ghana and Kenya as well. It’s now up to the artists and fans to mobilise in order to secure votes for the music videos that they believe deserve the honour of a Channel O Music Video Award. In the end, it’s the fans who decide who walks away with the statuette.” In total, the 2010 Channel O Music Video Awards are spread across 14 categories – with five nominees in each category, except Most Gifted Video of the Year which features six nominees.

The 2010 Channel O Music Video Awards is set to take place on Thursday 4 November at the Sandton Convention Center. Voters can have their say by voting via SMS [SMS the artist code to the number [+27 83 920 8406], on the web (www.mva.channelo.tv) or on their mobile phones [channelo.tv or on MXiT].

    @Uche same exact thing i was thinking, was just about to post that.
    so many of the same names all the time. there are a lot of more gifted and talented people that just aren’t as popular.
    oh well, maybe next year

    *most gifted*….how come i feel that sounds pretty “uncreative”?
    Well,i still do not know what Bumper to Bumper and Kenny Saint Brown’s Turn Me Around are doing up there.. but i think Djinee’s Overkilling, PSquare’s E No Easy, Dagrin Pon Pon Pon,Samini’s Sweet Mistake, Banky W’s Strong Thing,Naeto C’s Ako Mi Ti Poju are all good videos and they deserve to be credited….
    All the best to the nominees!

      you are absolutely right about what u wrote, i think the hero of the song TURN ME AROUND is dagrin and now that he is dead i dont think it should be nominated. there are many songs out there all over africa…

    Nigerians are doing us proud, I mean Channel O is a South African thing so big up guys… @ Uche and THE AMAKA, djinee is new in the sense that over here in SA and the rest of Africa apart from West Africa, his presence is being felt for the first time because of his video OVERKILLIN.

    Zeus release that video two years back don’t know why his on these awards again. When I googled the nominations and first read the most gifted male video I thought thats the list from 2009. I hope these awards are going to be more organized as they always not. Can’t have them outside of gauteng or even outside the country in nigeria or some where either then SA. Big ups to all the nominees, you did well.
