Tuface Idibia tops nominees list for Hiphopworld Awards

As the third edition of Hiphopworld Awards heats up, sources indicate that r&b superstar Tuface Idibia has bagged the highest number of nominations in the prestigious award scheduled for March 2008. Sources indicate that the nominee list is the result of careful consideration by judges of materials that have proven excellence in terms songwriting, production, rendition, promotion and acceptability (sales and popularity that is).


According to sources, among the list of artistes highlighted in the 19 different categories, Tuface Idibia made the top five list in six categories that include Album Of The Year , Artiste Of The Yr, Song Of The Yr( See Me So); Recording Of The Yr (True Love); Best R ‘N’ B/ Pop Album;  and Best Vocal Performance Male (Stylee). Among the Ladies, soul singer, Asa gets top recognition with four nominations that include Album of the Year, Recording of the Year (Bibanke) , Best Vocal Performance Female (Bibanke), and Hip Hop World Revelation.


Sources also disclosed that the nomination list also included categories for Both Song of the Year and Recording of the Year. While the former is tagged as the most popular song from an album in year under review and will be decided by a voting audience, the latter is tagged best single recording (on-air only or released) based on its originality and production. Among the nominees listed in these categories, only Jimmy Jatt’s Stylee bagged nominations in both categories. Stylee also gets nomination for Best Rap Single and Best Collaboration thus making it the song with the most nominations.


Tuface Idibia who recently lost his Range Rover jeep to an armed robbery attack is currently preparing for a six-city Nigerian tour tagged Tuface and Friends.
