    Na wa. How is Waje not on the female artiste of the year, or even R&B artiste of the year list? Instead I’m seeing Aramide and Eva on the female artiste of the year list? Like really?!
    And PLEASE tf is Toyin Lawani doing that she’s nominated as entertainment personality of the year..ahhhhhhhhhhh what kind of joke is that?!!
    And why is the meeting still being nominated? Same as Alakada? This is 2015. Those movies are OLD especially Alakada.
    Lord have mercy on all these mediocre Nigerian Awards sha. Not credible enough tbh.

    I watched the meeting…..nice movie, but it is a 2012 movie, how is it still getting nominations of 2015 movie of the year?

    where is Dencia or Tontoh Dikeh on this yeye list???? *rolls eyes* Their music got all BN community pressed and convulsing cos of its impact. #QueensOFAfricanEnergy
    Queens don’t attend lame awards shows anyways….#poko

    Question – since when did Wizkid and Burnaboy turn to pop acts??? LOL!!! na bye force to copy Americans??? oga ju

    This is not a credible awards show ejor!!! Rita Dominic is still getting nominated after how many years for that “Meeting” movie. haba!!! insult to the hard working nollywood actresses in movies since 2013. na wah

    Actor of the Year (Nigeria in Hollywod) – LOL!!! omo see this famizing category. odiegwu!! these men don’t even claim Naija as their homeland, they always claim Britico and then say “my name is Nigerian or my parents are Nigerian”. Hiss……the girl on ABC’s Revenge is the only Actress I know that claims “I am Nigerian”, despite having a Native American Mom and birthplace of USA. na wah

    These peeps r something else Rita D did exceptional ly great in “Iyore” which is a 2015 cinema released movie…A great movie at that too with a great cast. Dats the movie they should have used to nominate Rita with, rather than insult her in this way with nominating her for the meeting”. They did the same thing at AMVCA. The meeting is a good movie but goodness it is 3 years OLD…..mind u NEA had nominated “the meeting” in 2012/2013

    I don’t get how come kiss Daniel, korede Bello etc got into the list of new act to watch without reecado banks? That guy is %200 better than and more promising than all these jokers listed here.

    Well, since a 2012 movie is still been nominated shows that the organisers are bunch of jokers. Mtcheeww
