Award season is upon us once again and this time, it’s MTV Europe Music Awards unveiling its nominee list for the 2017 ceremony scheduled to hold on 12th December with Rita Ora as the host. Its also Taylor Swift season as she leads with 6 nominations including Best Video for her controversial Look What You Made Me Do video and artist of the year even though her year started pretty late as she dropped her first project after the first half of 2016. Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes and Kendrick Lamar follow up closely with 5 nods each.
This year, Best Male and Female were merged as Best Artist category as Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes and Taylor Swift battle for who clinches the highly coveted category.
In the African category, Davido and Wizkid set Nigeria’s flag flying, sadly the Tiwa Savages and Yemi Alades didn’t come through like we thought they are the females repping Africa. Thanks to Babes Wodumo for holding it down for African females as she also battles with fellow South African act Nasty C, Angola’s C4 Pedro and Kenya’s Nyashinksi.
