Anyhoo, the host for the first annual MAMAs is Trevor Nelson, I hope he’s done his research & he won’t call 9ice as 9 ice instead of 9ice. Like June Saprong. Or mispronounce 2face Idibia like the [policeman on] Hollyoaks dude. At least we’ll know the MAMAs will not present D’banj as D[‘banj Mo-Hits Allstars like the 2008 MOBOs. But, I digress, the country with the leading nominations is South Africa, with 19. While Nigeria is second with 16. Y’all know RSA’s only leading thanks to the fact that Naij doesn’t have a big Alternative scene.
I am sure your wondering the when & where of this big event. It takes at the Abuja Velodrome in Nigeria duh on the 22nd of November, 2008 double duh. With a televised broadcast as a 2 hour show on the 29th, still don’t know the actual times of the broadcasts, since it will be airing on local African stations and apparently on a/the international station(s) as well. Hope it goes well & I hope the organizers are not going to do it on Naija time, cause that would very embarassing. Just remembered a friend at church (don’t worry it was after service) telling me about the THISDAY Africa Rising Festival & about Chris Brown’s antics – The whole, don’t touch me cause my bodyguard will kill you antics, she did get a pic & they was this boy [from the audience] that looked like he was gonna hump CB with the LOOK. Plus, she told me about the late starts & whatnots. If you think I’m kidding about the late starts & whatnots, you could read Bella Naija’s account.
This is what happens when you’re about to rant about something, then you remember why you shouldn’t. Oh & if another ignorant heffer places a notability template on a famous Nigerian’s wikipedia article, I’ll place a notability template on those other people I’ve never heard. God knows, if I had a penny for every random American [& co] band/film/&co’s article on wiki, I’d never have to work again.
