Re: Mtv Africa Music Awards 2008 by adconline(m): 4:29pm On Oct 16, 2008
why having artistes who dont live in Africa on the list?
Re: Mtv Africa Music Awards 2008 by shilling(f): 4:35pm On Oct 16, 2008
@ ayomifull

Looking at the list of nominees, you'll realise that our Nigerian artistes deserve it more than all the others. Quality of music, popularity (Africa and international), even looks - however you look at it, our artistes deserve it more.
Re: Mtv Africa Music Awards 2008 by shilling(f): 4:44pm On Oct 16, 2008

Good question. Probably because they're "African" although nothing about them is African besides the colour of their skin and their roots.

Re: Mtv Africa Music Awards 2008 by shotster50(m): 11:54pm On Oct 16, 2008
@ adconline

You are asking why include non Africans or Africans not living in Africa.
If your question is the first one, let me ask you; why did the Mobos / MTV Europe have 'Best African Artistes' category even though the winners are not Europeans and most live in Africa? Heck even the Grammys too,
