HipHop World Awards 09 – How Much Do you want IT?

Hip Hop world Awards 09!!

Hip Hop world Awards 09!!

For the first time ever, I’m impressed with the nominee list for the 4th edition of naija’s prestigious Hiphop World Awards – especially the rap categories! Judges and Music fans alike are definitely gonna get their hands full deciding who deserves ‘Headie.’  In the rap categories, technicalities aside, the street buzz for all nominees in the Best Rap Album, the Best Rap Single and Lyricist on the Roll categories were crazy hot!!! tough one, I’m telling you…and I’m sure the judges are hoping audience votes will bail them out.lol.

Free Me!!! Terry G on da Beat

Don Jazzy,Terry G, ID Cabassa, and M.I’s brother, Jesse Jaggs are hot contenders for the Producer of the Year category.I’m hoping Terry G will be taken more seriously as a singer than a producer/collabo act this year. ‘Was also hoping he would at least bag a nomination in the Best Collabo category but …too much competition, I guess!!

Jude Okoye and DJ Tee go toe to toe at the Best Music Video Category. but hey, i wouldn’t be surprised if other contenders like Igho or Alfonso dormun snags Headie cos all the videos nominated are top notch, if you ask me!!

Headie - A prize to die for!!

Headie - A prize to die for!!

by the way have ya’ll heard the theme song for the hiphop world Music Award ’09?  rave of the moment rapper, M.I did his thing!!, it also featured the sensational Banky W, blaizing hot female emc kel and eLDee the Don on the beat…

How Much Do You Want IT – MI ft Banky W and Kel

still on the HiphopWorld Awards ’09, I’m a little surprised Faze didn’t get a nomination, at least in a song of the year category. Anyway, every category in this year’s award nominee list is Packed!! competition is stiff all the year.maybe nest yr bro!!

and for Celebrity Slap of the Year (lol), the nominees are: Djinee and MP. both artiste were nominated in the Next Rated category of the Hiphop World Awards – a category for upcoming artistes without an official album release. Is it me or has the word ‘upcomin’ been redefined? these dudes have been on the mainstream way too long to be tagged ‘upcoming’, what’s up with that? maybe Sasha would have made this category as well if she hadn’t released her long awaited album last year!!!

The Hip Hop World Awards which will be running on its 4th edition will be held on the 16th of May, 2009 at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

why Abuja? well one of my favorite bloggers, Nike Fagbule quotes the organizers’ head honcho, Mr Ayo Animashaun. he says ‘So many times, we have been confronted by people that Hip hop world awards only celebrates Lagos based acts, that is part of the reason why we are embarking on this journey outside Lagos,. Moreso, we’ve looked around and found that the only venue that befits what we’re trying to achieve this year; that can accommodate all our ideas and experiments, is the international Conference Centre Abuja
