MTV has announced Sauti Sol among 5 other artists have been shortlisted for Top African acts at the upcoming MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA), to be held at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow, United Kingdom, on 9 November 2014.
The wild card contenders are Sauti Sol (Kenya), Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Mafikizolo (South Africa), Gangs of Ballet (South Africa), Sarkodie (Ghana) and Anselmo Ralph ( Angola).
Off of the success of the steamy NISHIKE video, which was nominated as the Most Gifted from East Africa at the Channel O Music Video Awards 2014, Sauti Sol’s MTV Europe Music Awards nomination comes as no surprise.
To vote for Kenya’s Sauti Sol, tweet #MTVEMA #NominateSautiSol. Fans have until Sept 14th to vote. Winners will be announced Sept 16th.
