    • soji says:

      So, because d'banj release songs in 2013, he automatically gets a nomination. It doesn't work like that bro. May be d'banj needs to work harder for more nominations. After all Oliver Twist is on the list.

      • Gee'Jones says:

        so you are telling me that All those Yeye songs that they choose for the awards are better DBanj's ?
        Please lah, this man is far better this year than most of the other guys.,, maybe you should look back at the year and see how strong he stays and how much energy he brought into the Industry.
        I'm not a fan but it doesnt look good at all to neglect all his works just for the sake of Hate.
        Morning bro.

      • Andy says:
