    This is a clear cut of Channel O picking their fab people. MoCheddah again? What happened to Goldie for Say my name and Don’t touch my body? Or Omawumi for If you ask Me? Even Eva sef? Every time it’s Mocheddah or TIWA savage, pschew!
    And then the guys, Davido every time with Chocolate city biz? Wat about Vector, Ruggedman, Rayce, ChuddyK, Iyanya, Flowssick……will ChannelOAfrica ever give other people a chance?
    I’m not pleased with this, the standards are gradually falling.

    D’banj,me I appreciate ur hustle all the way regardless of wot anyone thinks.U’ve worked really hard (U and Tuface) and its really an extremely difficult task to still stay relevant esp since ur break up wiv ur friend/partner and yet,ur striving very hard despite the heavy criticisms towards u.I pray for ur kind of strength (I swear to God) and by the Almighty’s Grace,u wld reap the fruits of ur labour.As for me dear Tuface,more power to ur elbow.The most distinct thing abt u is that voice and by the grace of God,it would not be taken away frm u.Love u guys and plenty luck ahead of u both…..Also,well done to the other nominees,u lot av done well and u can only do better!
