With less than two weeks to the MAMAs awards, slated for Nairobi on October 10, nominations are in for the ‘Listeners’ Choice Award’

The award is meant to reflect on the African artists who have dominated the continent air waves in year 2008/9.  The nominees include artists from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Nigeria and the rest of Africa.

In Kenya Nameless led the pack with his song “Sunshine’ with Amani getting a slot for her song ‘Tonight’. They are up against Nigeria’s ‘Yori Yori’ by Bracket.

In Uganda, Blue 3 headlined with their collabo song ‘’Where You Are’ and ‘Together’ while Navio got it for his song ‘Gyange’. They are placed in the same category with Nigeria’s  P-squared, ‘No one like you’

AY’s ‘Leo’ from Tanzania will be up among other songs like Mr. Blu’s ‘Tabasamu’, Marlaw’s ‘Peep Peep’ and Quick Racka’s ‘Bullet’ from Nigeria.

The Nigerians have come out strong with top songs in the past year to compete with other Africans.
