“Fans and friends I av scooped a nomination in Mtv Mama Awards 2016 in the category of Listener’s choice,” Bebe Cool updated on Facebook Monday afternoon.
The Ugandan crooner has finally been nominated in the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) after having missed out on the first list but unlike last year, this time he has been nominated in a category he ‘hates most’ – the Listener’s Choice category.
Last year Bebe Cool trashed a similar award that had been won by Eddy Kenzo at BET, saying that unlike his song, ‘Love You Everyday’ that had been nominated for its good video, Eddy Kenzo had had to rely on the number of video views from his fans to land a nomination at BET.
He argued that the song had not been nominated because of its quality but rather because of its views on YouTube.
He now finds himself in a similar category because if it were not his fans, he would have missed out on the MAMA list this year.
“Ma fans lets do this together….” he commanded his Gagmel army on Facebook where he has one of the biggest following in Uganda.
Bebe Cool joins Eddy Kenzo, who had earlier been nominated in the Best Live Act category. Meanwhile, singer Sheebah Karungi has also been nominated in the same awards for her ‘Kisasi Kimu’ video.
The MTV Africa Music Awards, now in their 6th edition, recognise and reward musicians and achievers who have made the most impact on African music and youth culture over the previous year. This year’s winners will be awarded on Saturday, October 22, in Johannesburg, South Africa.
