I'm not trying to discredit the other nominees, but how was M.I. not nominated? It's probably the same unexplained reason he wasn't nominated for the BET award while D'banj (name two other songs on his current album besides scapegoat and endowed. And don't say Oliver Twist cos that just came out now long after the BET awards) and Tuface (A re-released album) got the nods.
