AFRICA STAND UP! It’s that time again to vote for your favourite artist (and hopefully most deserving artist) for the annual Chanel O Music Video Awards (MVA’s)2010. The awards will be taking place on the 4th of November 2010 at  the Sandton Convention in Johannesburg. Last year, the awards were hosted by Channel O presenters, the hunky Lungsta, KB and then Channel O “it girl” Nonhle Thema. Nonhle moved to Vuzu TV from Channel O, where she hosted “The O access show”.

 

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 “it’s tough”. The nominees must “Just Be Strong” (JBS).

Before I get carried away with my “Twitter tendencies” (lol), here are the nominees, judge for yourself.
