By Stella WaAfrika




Get ready for another edition of Channel O's premier music awards. The nominees have been announced today,Thursday, 4 September 2014.

 Africa’s leading urban music channel, Channel O, today announced the nominees for the 2014 Channel O Africa Music Video Awards.

Spread across a staggering 14 categories, this year’s Channel O Africa Music Video Awards nominees are a showcase of Original.African music from all corners of the continent – befitting to the dashing 17 year old music channel that has and continues to consistently be a pioneer for Africa’s musicians and music for well over a decade.

“The quality of music videos we have seen over the past few years is testament to the way music videos are playing an increasingly important role in the promotion of African music. It is refreshing to see newcomers go against industry veterans in this year’s eclectic nominees list, and this proves that there is no barrier to making an impact on the music scene. The music as well as the videos produced on our African soil is of the same, if not even better, quality as that of those produced internationally and most of our nominees are no stranger to performing on global stages,” says Channel O’s Director Nkateko Mabaso.

Voting takes place across a wide range of digital platforms: via the website and mobile site – voting on the website and on the mobile site [www.channelo.tv] is free and you are allowed to vote up to 100 times on both platforms respectively; via WeChat – voting on WeChat is free.
