Kenyans have once again made it onto the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) 2014 nomination list. We have had Kenyans winning in the previous years and this year we hope the nominees can pull it off as well. Wahu and Amani are among the Kenyan artists who have emerged victorious in the past.
The 2014 nominations were announced on April 16 with mixed feelings about the nominees. Despite having Kenyans on the list, people felt short-changed. This is however not meant to discourage us as we can still rally behind our artists and help them win.
Beautiful songstress Amani has been nominated in the best collaboration category for her song with Ugandaâ€™s Radio and Weasel titled Kiboko Changu. Sauti Sol have been nominated in the best group category where they will battle it out with Nigeriaâ€™s P-Square and South Africaâ€™s Mafikizolo.
Oscar winner Lupita Nyongâ€™o has also been nominated. She is in the non-music category alongside Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie.
Itâ€™s now up to us, to ensure victory goes to them. You can do this by voting online.
