Koko Master D'banj, rising act Davido, Tiwa Savage and Mo' Chaddah, are among the best of Africa's music acts who have been nominated for the 9th edition of the annual Music Video Awards organised by the continent's foremost urban music channel, Channel O.
The nominees list was released last weekend, in South Africa.
Spread across 14 categories, this year's Channel O Music Video Awards is a showcase of Original African music– befitting to the music channel that has steadfastly flown the flag for Africa's musicians and music for well over a decade.
"We continue to recognise and acknowledge the magnitude of African music and musicians. The nominations in this year's awards are yet another reflection of how Channel O is celebrating African musical talent. How it keeps growing from strength to strength and striving to stay Original African," says Leslie Kasumba, Channel O Africa Manager.
Now in its 9th year, the Channel O Music Video Awards is the only public-voted annual music video awards show broadcast around the continent that exclusively features African artists.
The annual Channel O Music Video Awards has grown to be the Original African channel's signature event. This year's awards will hold on Saturday, 17th November at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown, bringing the Channel O Music Video Awards to Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa for the first time.
