      Obviously it is going to be between Tekno and Mr Eazi. But Tekno will win hands down.

    I’m so conflicted on who should win . For starters the first thing they should do is categorize this thing by region . Secondly they should allow us to receive our awards televised .

    Not sure who should win , while Davido is having a good year this year he didn’t do much last year . I leave it to Wizkid or Mr.Eazi , however Tekno churned out hits . Let’s see sha

    Not a good outlook for all the Nigerians though. They will have to share the votes, same for the SA guys – so, Stonebwoy should just have a cruise mehn!
