  2. What about kissdaniel,he did great

  3. wizkid will win best male,artist of the year and song of the year ojuelegba davido and co should go and sleep.It STARBOY YEAR

  4. Guy you like problem, who is talking about davido here,so you cant talk about wizkid without including davido…. Mtchewww

    • Haahahha

  5. Nonsense Awards…Which song Wizkid sing this year ooo making him a nominee 4 best male act?d earlier dis award organisers put a lil bit of credibility d better…

    • Fxck you bro for that statement

      • No need to get vulgar. Reply him appropriately

    • Ewu baba nla na dis year, soweto, mamacita, bad girl, Don’t know ft justin skye, many more mumu

  6. davido is paying the prize of his sony deal no nominations

  7. finally it wizkid year song of the year no competition ojuelegba and best male.I am happy for davido no nominations haha he should keep signing international deals its starboy season

  8. Just one tin i found amusing in dis list putting Olamide in best hip hop category is funny just lyk putting Mode 9 in best Rnb…SMFH

    • u a fool..sorry to say this but which hip hop song is popular than who u y shouldn’t he rep as d best from nigeria

      • So “who u epp” Is now a hip hop song? Wow

      • Olamide being on that list of best Hip Hop Artist is similar to putting Arsenal in same UCL group with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus… Olamide (Arsenal) is the least likely to win that Award cos we all know that he’s wack. As far as i’m concerned, the Best Rap Song out of Nigeria this year was from Reminisce (Asalamaleku)… Olamide is just an over-bloated bread…

    • Sorry to say this but u a fool…u should tell me a hip hop song in west africa that is as popular as who u EPP….so y should he rep Nigeria in this category

    • u be mumu u no nothing about music ?????#olamide #YBNL
