Dbanj’s ‘Oliver twist’ is arguably his best claim to international success yet as it debuted at the #9 spot on the UK billboard charts while Psquare’s hit album, The Invasion as well as two critically acclaimed international collaborations – with Maybach Music boss, Rozay and Akon must have earned them the nomination at this year’s award.


Emeli Sandé, Plan B, Rita Ora and Labyrinth lead this year’s nominations, which takes place on November 3 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

With four out of the last five winners in this category coming from Nigeria – 2face Idibia (2007 ), 9ice (2008), Nneka (2009) and Wizkid (2011), will either of Dbanj or the duo of Psquare bring this prestigious award home? Who will you bet on to carry the day as every nominee deserves to win it?
