_MG_2121 Cassper & K.O lead 11th Channel O Video Music Award Nominations Cassper & K.O lead 11th Channel O Video Music Award Nominations  MG 2121This year’s Channel O Africa Music Video Awards takes place on Saturday, 29 November at Nasrec Expo Centre in Soweto, south of Johannesburg. The music channel which is 17 years old, has put African music on the map since inception and the growth of our industry is testament to that. With 14 heated categories the competition is officially on, with Cassper Nyovest going up against his nemesis AKA in a few of them.

With K.O and Cassper Nyovest leading the pack with 5 nominations each, we think this is South Africa’s year to dominate the annual award show. It has been one of the biggest years for hip hop in recent times – with K.O breaking all records by having his song ‘CaraCara’ being viewed almost 1 million times – which is unheard of for SA hip hop!

“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.
