AFRICAN ARTIST OF THE YEAR
None Nigerian category
Cabo Snoop (Angola) – Windeck
  • R2Bees (Ghana) – Kiss Your Hand
Liquid Deep (South Africa) – Fairytale
Freshly Ground (South Africa) – Waka Waka
V.I.P (Ghana) – Away

Hmmm! that song is not his song o. It was a remix to Wande Coal's "Kiss your Hand" so I don't know why R2 Bees should be nominated with this song. They should nominate him for a song he did himself. not someone else's remix. This list is so crappy.
