AFRICA STAND UP! Itâ€™s that time again to vote for your favourite artist (and hopefully most deserving artist) for the annual Chanel O Music Video Awards (MVAâ€™s)2010. The awards will be taking place on the 4th of November 2010 at Â the Sandton Convention in Johannesburg. Last year, the awards were hosted by Channel O presenters, the hunky Lungsta, KB and then Channel O â€œit girlâ€ Nonhle Thema. Nonhle moved to Vuzu TV from Channel O, where she hosted â€œThe O access showâ€.
Nonhle, KB and Lungsta
South African artists have never really done well in these awards as many in previous years were scooped by artists from either Nigeria, Botswana or Mozambique, etc. I checked out the nominees and I must say â€œitâ€™s toughâ€. The nominees must â€œJust Be Strongâ€ (JBS).
Before I get carried away with my â€œTwitter tendenciesâ€ (lol), here are the nominees, judge for yourself.

Will TKZEE scoop the award after the â€œresurrection from the deadâ€ or will TEARGAS remain a favourite among the South African audience or maybe Kâ€™NAAN will take the awards home after a very successful and highly publicized album? (Also thanks to the WC).Â
