  1. Best of luck to all the nominees. I have to admit I know all the Nigerian nominees save bantu. Off to learn more and I hope JJC wins their category. Oh, and, I love Bracket but worry that since they are up against Awilo who is practically a legend, it might be hard for them or any other nominee in that category to get the award. nevertheless, best of luck to them all.
