DBANJ & WIZKID UP FOR MTV EMA AWARDS...

This is surely a good development to the bank accounts of these guys and Nigeria as a whole...More Young Nigerians are now trooping into the studios to cook great beats and lyrics..all thanks to Dbanj and so many others

Africa’s hottest contemporary artists could also be in the frame for an EMA award, as Sarkodie, Camp Mulla, Wizkid, Mi Casa and D’Banj fight it out for a slot in the Worldwide Act category, where they will compete against their peers in India and the Middle East (from Monday 15 October). The final Worldwide Act nominees from each region (Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia Pacific and Africa/India/Middle East) will be announced the week of 30 October and the winner will be named at the show in Frankfurt.

Viewers can vote for EMA categories such as Best New, Best Live and more by visiting www.mtvbase.com online. Voting for EMA categories is open now until 23:59 CAT on Friday 9 November 2012.

After posting this news, i could not help think deep on the criteria being used to select African nominations for this particular award..where is Asa, Tuface, Femi Kuti, Nneka, Darey....I guess the organizers know better but i hope its not because they both dine and wine with the GOOD and CONVICT dudes...
