Africa's world best song is ELEDUMARE. Africa's world best album is NO PLACE FOR MY DREAM. Africa's world best video is JASI OR PERSONALLY. Africa's world best female artist should be LIRA. Africa's world best male artist is WIZKID. Africa’s World Best Live Act is Timaya, Tiwa Savage and may b wizkid. Africa’s World Best Entertainer Of The Year is Wizkid

Anonymous said...

Linda, ModeNine got 4 nominations and thought he did not deserve to be mentioned in your write-up. If it was MI, you would have put his picture boldly there. As a public figure, if you're NOT fair in your reporting you would soon lose credibility.
