BN presented the list, with Tiwa Savage, Davido, Desmond Elliot and Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha leading the pack- read it here.
There’s one little problem with the nomination list – pop group Skuki who have been in the music business since 2009, with hit singles like “Banger“, were nominated in “Best New Act” category.
The brothers – Peeshaun and Va Va Voom, are nominated alongside Oritse Femi, Patoranking, Tekno Miles, and Run Town.
They took to their Twitter page to speak out about the nomination

Not moved by social acceptance or crowd mentality. Awards don’t put money in my bank account. Dat nomination had beta been an error #NEA2014
