Naija artistes have done it again as they bagged seven awards at the just concluded Channel O Music Video awards. The winners are:

Big congratulations to the Nigerian music industry for constantly living up to expectations.
On a not too happy note, it seems that (naturally) quite a number of South African fans were not too happy at the ‘Nagerian brodas’ coming on their home soil and sweeping a large chunk of Channel O awards. South African acts managed to win just three awards.
In one of my earlier articles about Trace Urban’s ‘conspiracy theory’ against Naija music, I did give kudos to Channel O for being a key factor in the modern evolution of Nigerian music, even though it’s a South African owned station.
