    I love Tiwa Savage and DonJazzy with ALL my heart. Okay
    maybe some part. But that video for ‘Without my heart’ was total
    rubbish! Honestly, and now seeing it on this list with the OVER 50
    really nice videos in Nigeria. HA! At this point I just believe
    awards brand dont give based on credibility but the affiation the
    act will bring to their brands(headlines et al). It is well!
    Congrats Lola Rae!

    September 5, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Can someone ask Denrele to cease wearing this gold jacket? Like WTF! I saw him wearing this same jacket at the beach on Sunday night with those heeled Timberland boots and how he managed to dance on a wooden ledge at the Vertigo bar still amazes me!

    September 5, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    As always, Leslie Kasumba puts her favourite people on the list.
    I won’t be surprised if DJ Exclusive will be hosting the awards this year as he seems to be getting all the gigs from ChannelO and Mnet and Big Brother as well. This is a clear case of politics as usual. Same story every year. #yawns

  22. R2bees Rock! love the Nigga songs

    September 5, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    Yayyyy,Mocheddah is back! I zoom to see Toke black Knuckles,awwwwww poor child,the comment about hiding her finger is getting to her… R2bees and Toyo Delazy are nominated!
