  5. mori

    October 10, 2013 at 10:54 pm

    Azin my exact thoughts! ‘personally’ by Psquare deserves
    more than two nominations sef. choreography, video of the year and
    use of costumes atleast. I’m more than shocked sha.

    Is that all? Nominations for this year’s hit songs n videos
    and no “this year” by Jaywon, no “personally” by p-square (all
    things being equal, that “personally” video ought to have been
    nominated in more than four categories as provided above), no dbanj
    nomination? I humbly submit that this isnt a fair representation of
    the 2013 hit videos… Haba? P-square at least deserves to be

    • Lawlah

      October 11, 2013 at 1:27 am

  26. Trinity

    November 11, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    The truth remains that the compilers of this list are simply jealous of PSquare’s exploit and progress. ” Perssonally” that can compete with any video in the world. This is what kills Nigerian things (trbalism and favouritism) revist ur list and tell me why even Alingo shuld not be there. RUBISH…
