Sierra Leone’s Renowned music group, LXG, has been nominated for this year’s MTV Base Music Award. LXG, the trio music group, are the only Sierra Leonean artists to be nominated at one of Africa’s most prestigious music awards.

LXG is nominated in the same category with Nigerian Superstars Kiss Daniel and Burna Boy for the Listeners Choice award.
The ’10 thousand’ stars are arguably one of Sierra Leone’s most popular artists. They are credited with several hit songs. The group is presently on their oversee tours.

African artists will battle it out in the different award categories for the enviable honors. Nigerian Superstar Wizkid and South African Athlete Caster Semenya, and popular Nigerian Blogger Linda Ikeji, among others, are all up for the Personality of the Year award.

Nigerian Dancehall artist Patoranking and Tanzania’s Diamond are running for the Best Male Act.
On the Hip Hop category, Olamide, Emtee, Riky Rick, Ycee and Kiff No Beat are up all for this category.

Popular South African comedian and host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, will host this year’s award which is scheduled to take place in Johannesburg on 22nd October at the Ticketpro Dome.

Noah was quoted in a statement saying: “I’m a huge fan of African music and achievement, and it’s going to be massive pleasure celebrating them both at the MTV Africa Music Awards 2016 in my own home town in Johannesburg,”

The MTV Africa Awards, known for short as the MAMAs, was established in 2008 by MTV Network in Africa. The first Award show was held at the Velodrome in Abuja, Nigeria.
