    Tiwa its time to drop the lip sycning and miming on stage. You have to prove to the world the talent in Africa, don’t go and disgrace your fellow female musicians. You go girl!!!

    Congrats to all.
    by the way, make sure you have a patent on any original sound you are presenting there, some of my people here like to steal from motherland and pretend they don’t know what they are doing

    I hope Tiwa doesn’t perform “Wanted”. I hope she doesn’t wear all that pancake on her face. I hope she doesn’t mention Tee Billz in her speech if she wins. I hope she really shouts out Don Jazzy, so D’banj can throw something at his TV in anger.

    One question–why is Olamide not included in these nominations? Has he not been making us dance for the past few years now? If Ice Prince can win a BET award, then Olamide should win 5 awards.

    Na Davido go win… dem no even make e perform. Song of the year: Skelewu. That song along fi scatter the BET awards. E fi even turn to promotional/viral stuff. Only relevant threat to Davido is that amazing Khona song by Mafikizolo (which should have been the theme song for corner kicks @ the World Cup).
