      Hillary dumb, there is something called opinion, and we can’t all have the same. So go and learn the meaning of hater. Ok

    • Hillary

      October 21, 2012 at 11:42 pm

      tama lame, when next you want to air an opinion, do it courteously..there’s something termed courtesy, ok?

  15. Chattyzee

    October 21, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    I wonder why D’banj did not win anything, not that I care… congrats to all!

    • Ada

      October 21, 2012 at 11:00 pm

      You obviously can’t read! Don’t you see ‘Song of the year’ – Oliver twist

    October 21, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Yung6Ix is a better lyricist. That young dude has great content more than Vector and Ice prince. I wonder the basis for their assessment. Wizkid should have that Psquare n DbanJ award, he was so great this review year. However, congratulations to all of them. Would have been vexed if I didn’t find flavour’s name.

    If you think that wiz kid should have won the album of the then I think you were only dream….I would have loved to ask you one question….within the past one yr and ten years who is the highest selling artist in Nigeria ever………….can you name 3 songs in wizkid superstar album that should have earned him the album of the yr…..wiz kid has had an incredible yr and there is no doubt about that……..but to say that superstar is the album of the is funny…..I believe that next yr will be flavor, waje, tuface and wizkid…..congrats to those that one….,,,

  18. nich

    October 21, 2012 at 6:45 pm will also be top next yr….

    Congratulations to all of em! Wizzy, D’Banj, P. Square… Would have love Eva to win in that category but knew with the other contenders, she couldn’t have won, but all the same, they can add the nominations to their CV, and sure they had fun!

    October 22, 2012 at 9:24 am

    Woulda been great if Praiz won the next rated. But why d hell is Davido in dat category? Is the dude not rated already.

  24. new bride

    October 22, 2012 at 9:32 am

    Please can someone tell me the difference between song of the year and recording of the year?

  25. Retrochic

    October 22, 2012 at 11:38 am

    NaetoC didnt win anything, why, his songs were major hits last year and this year, and talk about his bumper hits, 5ND6, and tony montana ft Dbanj, i really dont understand the basis of thier selections sha, and of course i think deserved his wins

  26. her royalmajesty

    October 23, 2012 at 9:25 am

    congrats to all the winners, davido u re hot, wizzy and chuddy k i see you

  27. Toksy

    October 25, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    i really would love the criteria they use in selecting their songs & the number of months that the selected songs are under review. Although most deserve their award but davido ought to have won in a different category, it just seems the award was given to him under next rated to save their faces from embarassment. I mean isn’t davido already rated?
