  1. Rubissh.. Where iz wizzy

  2. Una dey mad, Olamide badoo and any other YBNL guy no dey the list, na rum be that, stupid nominations

  3. Veri stupid and insensitive nominations… Olamide,Casper Nyovest and Lil kesh didnt make the noms list;dahtz whack
    Infact what z dia year of review,kuz i cant imagine Tiwa being on this list not to talk of the oda naija nominees !… Itz al abt politics this dayz;#Corruption

    • It’s an African award and not a Nigerian award, any Nigerian u think should be there and he or she is not, it’s nobody’s problem, it’s Africa, some fellas just listen to other countries music, you think it’s only Nigerian music people listen to

  4. Politics just dey smell everywhere for this list. It’s why the music from this continent keeps getting cornier. Fools!

  5. Dis one na Rubbish Award I swear…No Cassper,Olamide,Wizkid,Lil Kesh,M.I,Phyno,Kiss Daniel nd so on….na mumu award be dis I swear!!!

  6. Rubbish platform for awards..were’s olamide,wizkid,2face,banky,mi #Iranu

  7. Seriously una dey mad wel wel una own na jst to wake up cum dey nominated anyhow people

  8. Tiwa savage who has been pregnant through out this year got best female nomination… Lol… This award is a joke…. The biggest joke ever…

  9. Loool…. I swear this award is a scammest scam…. Tiwa’s who has been pregnant is nominated and Yemi alade in same category with reekadobanks… They must be mad. Anyways I’m just hearing about the Kora shit for the first time,they don’t matter. Make them rot with their bastard award

  10. Fucked up award

  11. fucked up award…no wizkid

  12. Amazing awards, i am nigeria but live in cote divoire and i must say that here naija music rocks, but what you guys dont understand is this .. here lil kesh, olamide and some of our heavyweights in naija aint their favourites here, flavour is a megastar here and some unknown artistes like wizboy not wizkid o is even more recognized dan some popular artistes in naija .. if you doubt me check any of wizboy song on youtube and check out the comments, most of them are in french, especially his song lovinjitis featuring cote divoires heavy weight teeyah thats bcos his fanbase here in cotedivoure is more than they are in naija, people here know shoki but they dont know lilkesh surprise?? So my opinion, this award represents africa as a whole

    • boss ….dia music also is not recognized here in nigeria……so i think dis is politic ……wackiest list

    • please go and sleeep.. this your long stupid comment like formal letter

  13. psquare go for legendary

  14. best award in africa, go psquare

  15. Legendary award nomination… Psquare over Yvvone Chaka Chaka? I think not!

  16. Sorry guys olamide mayb ur nigeria rap king wrt now,but he needs to do more I min content wise to be norminated in dx kinda awards!shout out too baddo though!

    • Guy shut da fuck up if u dnt knw wat 2say,infact let me put it to u that naija in d engine of music in the whole Africa followed by ghana and South Africa.when it comes to music in Africa is all about nigeria.As for the content syd go write atleast 4bars make we hear.

  17. Nobody knows olamide in africa, he is only known in ibadan lagos and other yoruba
    land. who knows nothing about rap songs.

    • true talk

      • i laugh at ur calamity…e z nt known in Africa nd e got a nomination in MAMAS AND AFRIMMA AND WON…HE Z NT KNW??AND HE SHUT DOWN YANKEE,MALAYSIA,LONDON EVERYWHERE…U dey yab shit fot mouth….hu knw yu gan self….idiot

        • In mama he won best west african act which we all know only lagos votes can make him win, afrimma is more or less a nigerian award .. its not even recognized

          • loool….afrimma Nigeria award and davido nd wizkid didnt win…u go juz dey talk sh**t!!!nigeria award and cassper nd aka wid diamond won!!….u be idiot…go rethink yur life!!..smh…let my nigga be great!!

  18. Who told you that olamide is not recognized by outsiders I don’t think you watch his concert at London, Malaysia, Cyprus, and so one , cos you guys are staying trash.

    • People that attend his shows are nigerians in diaspora .. dont act ignorant, for instance go to youtube and search the ongoing coke studio africa season 3, check out olamide and flavours perfomances 1st thing u will notice is that most flavour’s perfomances hv more dan a million views whereas only 1 of oamide’s perfomance hv crossed 300,000, the rest are not even up to 100k views, secondly look at the comment section of each videos in coke studio africa you will notice most pple who comment under olamide’s vids are only nigerians, now check out flavours u will see the difference, finally all flavours performances made the coke studio album am not sure if olamide’s ever did, my point is this olamide’s style of music is basically for nigerians, its not really felt outside nigeria

      • u are a bastard..

        i repeat again..u are a bastard

      • u are a bastard..

        i repeat again..u are a bastard…davido nd wizki?.dd dey bother tu call dose two wack artiste atall…they are wack…very wack singers

      • u are an idiot…
        OLAMIDE AND FENA-TURN UP….MADE D COKE STUDIO ALBUM!!!Search wella bfre sayin trash here

        • You are the biggest fool, where did u see fena in season 3, mumu i said season 3 ..fena and olamide was season 2. .. mind u in season 2 none of olamide’s performances got up to 100k views whereas that same season flavour had 2 performances with more than a million views, may u remain anonymous for life say amen!

    • dont mind dem jhare…dey are fools…whch award dia papa collect(best okada rider in their area)…d guy gt millions of naira in hs acoount u here sayin rubbish…am suo dose are wizkid fans…wizkid cnt release a hit single in a year!! smh fr im…
