    Hi Bella, there’s an error in your post. It says “The award ceremony took place on Sunday 29th June 2014.”
    Tiwa might be proud but everyone has got his/her own bad side too. Besides, I’m voting for the song not her. Eminado all da way!!!!!!!

    ooh.. tough one, but congratulations to all of them, they worked really hard to get here, would be voting for tiwa savage though, i really love her voice/songs.

    Wow what a lovely treat for Tiwa after that lovely story book wedding. HAHA!! Haters will die!

    TIWA ke? Like they never heard of Waje or Omawumi? I’m waiting to hear Tiwa give a performance without lip synching and produce a song without auto tunes. I honestly think the lady can sing, but DEF. not the best female music act in Naija -not even by a close stretch.

      Hi Bizzy,or is it Jini ? -_-
      At least if you want to be bitter and spew out hate have some sense.
      I hope your life is better after these mean comments. May your heart find peace and joy..

    They should stuff their award where the sun don’t shine and trees don’t grow. Yeye award that the stupid people will present during commercial break or even before/after the show sef. If them like make Saheed Osupa win, how it take concern us. Us Africans need to stop selling ourselves short for anything foreign….even our own fellow negros can’t even show some respect….i bet my pretty bum that only Lupita and Chiwentel would get announced on that stage and thats because oyinbo people have ‘accepted’ them….smh. Long story short I motion that none of African based artists should show up if they won’t present the award as part of they show.

    Mafikizolo should win – they are amazing and the girl as a great voice unlike our Aunty autotune Tiwa.
