  15. These names sound alien to me, no Aka, Caspper, Uhuru, Da L.E.S, Nasty and others. The organisers are lucky they there no be naija, someone for don make headline before this list. Also they didn’t include international artistes in their list of award categories Which is very bad. In fact, the organisers no try at all
