Channel O African Music Video Awards 2014 Nominees

Sep 04, 2014, 10:37 AM

Channel O's African Music Video Awards are on the horizon and we kicked it off in spectacular fashion by attending the unveiling of the nominations this afternoon at Room 5 in Rivonia. It was a star studded affair as some of the who's whos of the local entertainment industry made their way to the fancier side of JHB to enjoy an afternoon of mingling, music and most importantly, the unveiling of the Channel O African Music Video Awards nominees

Local rappers Cassper Nyovest and K.O. will be smiling quite handsomely this afternoon after scooping an impressive FIVE nominations each. Nigerian superstar, Davido will be impressed too after matching those 5 nominations. So many of the songs/videos we've come to love have found their way into the nominations after a successful year including the likes of Caracara, Doc Shebeleza and Rands and Nairas. Even Channel O's director couldn't hold the excitement back!

“The quality of music videos we have seen over the past few years is testament to the way music videos are playing an increasingly important role in the promotion of African music. It is refreshing to see newcomers go against industry veterans in this year’s eclectic nominees list, and this proves that there is no barrier to making an impact on the music scene. The music as well as the videos produced on our African soil is of the same, if not even better, quality as that of those produced internationally and most of our nominees are no stranger to performing on global stages,” says Channel O’s Director Nkateko Mabaso.

Voting takes place across a wide range of digital platforms: via the website and mobile site - voting on the website and on the mobile site [www.channelo.tv] is free and you are allowed to vote up to 100 times on both platforms respectively; via WeChat - voting on WeChat is free.
