    so whats the diff btw Best new/most promising awards?

    • zsa zsa

      July 17, 2013 at 8:26 pm

      I’m not entertainment savvy but since when do producers get awards? directors yes but producers??….south-south musician of the year?…best MARKETER of the year?????
      The repetition is just ridiculous, “best” actor/movie/actress is good enough, adding “of the year” is just dumb, i mean its obviously not “of the century” so…..

    July 16, 2013 at 10:55 am

    These categories are plain silly! Ratchet award!

      July 17, 2013 at 2:44 pm

      Best South-South musician of the year; Best Islamic Artiste of the year. Under the Ghana category, you have best and hottest? All the “of the year” sef…it’s an annual award, of course it’s of the freaking year!
      Biko, I’m not looking again. But let me tell you this, City People, no freaking body will take you seriously if you go on like this. If I was an adviser to any of these celebs, I would tell my client not to get dolled up and use effort for this.

    Too much categories. I acutally skipped and not even bother to notice. Best Hip Hop, Best Rap, Best Musician??? What type of music Wizkid does then. If American Awards shows had so many categories, all the nominess in the categories would be winners.$$$$ My look a like Yvonne can pull off anything effortless, baby face Mercy, my fav Rita and all above looked good expect that Halima woman.

    This awards show is utter rubbish…it’s pure nonsense IMO. Please wats the freaking difference between “musician of the year(male n female)” and “best musician of the year(male n female)”. It just tells me that the organizers are illiterates and don’t know wat they r doin n as such shud not be taken seriously.
    Halima Abubakar…you need help urgently, ur case is very serious.
