Davido Nominated For Best African Act @ MTV EMA, Glasgow 2014
The name on everyone's lips this year has certainly been Davido, and the awards/recognition keep pouring in left, right and center. Moments ago, MTV revealed its nominees for the 2014 MTV European Music Awards #EMAs which will be held at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow, Scotland, on the 9th of November. Davido, as expected, is nominated for the "Best African Act" award.
Other nominees include Goldfish (South Africa), Diamond (Tanzania) and Toofan (Togo). The 5th and final nomination slot is still up for grabs with Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Anselmo Ralph (Angola), Sarkodie (Ghana), Mafikizolo (South Africa), Gangs of Ballet (South Africa), Sauti Sol (Kenya), all vying for the Wildcard. To get Tiwa in, simply tweet #MTVEMA followed by #NominateTiwaSavage.
Goodluck to the Nigerian representatives, Davido and Tiwa Savage!
#DidYouKnow: Davido is also up for the "Artist of the Year" award at the upcoming Kora Awards 2014. The Cash-Prize for the winner in this category is... wait for it... $1 million! If my memory serves me right, only P-Square have won this award from Nigeria in the past.
