    Congrats guys…i wonder though, how does this work? Did you show only the naija nominations in each catergory? Don’t they have a max number of nominations? I will check sha

    I don’t know this award but I already know that it has no value. How on earth can you have 18 nominees for a category…how? And Oliver Twist is still being nominated for awards? Come on!

    its not really cheering news tho. d “nominations” seems more like a shortlist (abi longlist sef). for instance, in d Best Enertainer category there are almost 500 musicians from all over d WORLD; US, UK, SA, europe, etc. hope no too de for us winning a tin. congrats to d artists anyway

    Very confused, is this a solely Nigerian awards show? I know there is already a World Music Awards internationally, I had no idea that they had these many categories for African acts. A website link to the organizer of this latest popularity contest would be appreciated.

    Clearly a silly award that lacks credibility. How can oliver twist be nominated? usually credible awards only nominate acts that fall within 1 yr period. World award with only naija artists…..psst

    4 nominations for dr Sid!!!! This is just the beginning amen love the surulere song

    BellaNaija, the way you have reported this makes the award lack credibility. Please at least 50 artists were nominated across the world per category and if you visit the World Music Award voting page, you can filter it by continent. In the world’s best song category, there are 22 African acts nominated. BellaNaija, try and report it right na. And it’s clearly a voter’s choice type of thing. For example, there are 220 North American songs nominated under this same category, almost as if whatever song came out in 2013 made it on the list

    You are all -. The World Music Awards is an international awards show founded in 1989 under the High Patronage of Albert II, Prince of Monaco and is based in Monte-Carlo. Awards are presented to the World’s best-selling Artists in the various categories and to the best-selling Artists from each major territory. Sales figures are provided by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). Nine Awards are voted online by the public. The Awards are gold-plated, each depicting an Artist holding the world, and are designed and manufactured by R.S. Owens & Co. who also make the Oscars.

    @Modella,that u have received no response shows that ur question is a silly one!D’Banj is still being outlined for shows till tomorrow,he is the highest paid artiste of all the Nigerian acts mentioned here and those not mentioned(flat rate of 9million naira per show),he is chosen as ambassador for so many companies plus getting bigger and more diverse by the day and u sit behind ur computer or fone to ask the most senseless question!Oh myyyyyyy……

    Oliver twist uptill now? D banj’s career as a musician looks dead to me? plus, what about that TINA guy from Ghana. loved his badder than bad song…

    Even more evident that dbanj hasn’t done anything meaningful since leaving mohits. Oliver Twist still?

    Please how much did they all contribute to be nominated for these awards?

    Checked out the entire list of nominees for awards. The number of nominees per category is bananas. I agree that BellaNaija should list all nominees rather than just Nigerian nominees but then again, for those that want to see the full list, they can search online for it 🙂 “Google is your friend after all” 🙂

    donjazzy confirmed that the mohits split came from him not dbanj but some haters/ igbo donjazzy fans are still hating on dbanj for stupid reasons,dbanj hasn’t done anything meaningful after olivertwist and scapegoat remix with kanye was no 1 on hotnewhiphop.com in newyork with over 400,000 downloads, don’t tell me nonsense was no 1 on soundcity top10 ,mtvbase top10,beatfmlagos top10 lastyr, top of the world no 1 on beatfm lagos,no 2 beatfm ibadan last year, some haters said dbanj won’t win any award after olivertwist but there prayer no work, dbanj won encomium awards 013, he was awarded by osun state governor etc,dbanj got 4 world music awards nom in 012, the award was postponed to 013 and was postponed again to 014,they still play dbanj olivertwist in uk clubs,uk radio,uk birthday parties etc up till now,get facts before hating haters

    @Mama Mia,if D’Banj’s career looks or seems dead to you,be kind enuf to help him revive it!Sho [email protected] Cat,if only u will be kind enuf or atleast bother to find out facts before u yarn or type,that wld even be much better for u.It won’t cost u much to read the post posted by “Gospel” just so that u can be less ignorant…..

    • Mama Mia!!!

      Abeg go and sleep jor, you all hate to hear the truth. Dbanj has not made any hit since don jazzy (Mo hits). forget all those no1s for 1 week you see, it is mainly for formality sake. The likes of wiz kid and Tu face are still doing well despite their split from EME and Prime time respectively. what is his excuse?
