The Nigerian Music Video Awards (NMVA) will hold its fifth edition in November, and as a part of the build up to the event, the organisers have released the nominees’ list. Jodie, who blew most people away with her mid-tempo single, ‘Kuchi kuchi’ and Darey, who released his Double Dare album this year both picked up four nominations each.

Both artistes were nominated in the ‘Best Use of Costumes’ and ‘Video of the Year’ categories. Jodie’s two other nominations came in the ‘Best Indigenous Concept’ and ‘Best Highlife Video’ while Darey was also nominated in the ‘Best R&B Video’ and ‘Best Afro Pop Video’.

Goldie who has come up in leaps this year picked up three nominations along with Freestyle. Sammie Okposo, Dipp, Omawumi, Tipsy and T.I.V were all nominated twice.
