Singer Edrisa Musuuza alias Eddy Kenzo has been nominated in the prestigious Nigeria Entertainment awards (NEA) under the Best African Male Artist category.
The “Sitya loss” hit maker will be competing with South African rapper Casper Nyovest, Ghanaian Stone Boy, Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz, Kenya’s Souti sol, Togolese Toofan and South Africa’s Nasty C.
The ceremony to be held on September 4, 2017 in New York is meant to recognize the contributions of African entertainers to the industry.
It also aims at promoting the image and culture of Nigeria and Africa at large.
The Nigeria Entertainment Awards (NEA Awards) were established in New York City in January 2006 to serve the growing African population in North America.
This has increased the awareness of a new edgy style of African entertainment that has helped promote Nigerian/African acts to the world.
