The Beatz Award 2017 Nominee’s List

The Beatz award is designed to appreciate the work of ghost players in music creation that has helped shaped the Nigerian entertainment industry. A lot of us fail to recognize that our favourite artistes solely didn’t make it to the top as there are several personalities behind that picture perfect super star we see on screen and as such, honouring these unseen bodies is long overdue. Thank You Beatz Award for being that thoughtful. The award ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 16th, 2017, at Shell Hall, Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos. Voting begins Thursday, October 26th, 2017, and ends Friday, November 17th, 2017. Visit for more information and how to vote.
