  1. Were isz faze in diz nominations,,ar u guys saying isz ORIGINALITY ALBULM aint part of dis ur so called quark award,,,i must say d group of screening commitee dat put 2gether dis names ar all flukes,,as far as am concern dis award isz an empty award,,without nigeria's finest vocalist faze,,

  2. 9ja music is really improving but all d way we all miss CEO 4rm the 9ja music industry. gud luck 2 Psquare in the 2010 hiphop world music award.

  3. Dere r dis new young artist down there at minna..named peter n paul jacobs,dey r so gud.wld wnt u guyz 2 mit dem.dey r wel known in minna niger state.

  4. The present nominee,deserve to be in the 2010 aword list.2face u can still try next year. Implication is not bad.

  5. They lost there credibility since the year P-square had a great year,good album and they didnt win all there 6 nominations….HHWA is for upcoming artist go check pple that were there,Im pretty sure Tu-face,P-square and D-banj are not gonna be there at all,there award sucks real bad.

    I dont understand when p-sqare won Artist of the year at this year Kora ward with 1 million dollars and also been nominated for BET.So with all this they dont reckon with it and didnt give them any award….This is always an arrangement,this is no award at all at all. Dont start saying is about the vote cos thats really upset me cos I know you dont go by vote but by what you want.

    I dont know when the so call Hiphop guy started and he as let it enter his head that he lost so much credibility so soon…………….If you are reading this or any of your associate,watch out and be straight in whatever you do okay………….its like P-square or Tu-face winning grammy award and was unable to win ur so called local award………I dont get it

  6. Who recognizes Nigerian awards anyway…lmao, they are way below under the radar because they never use thier brains and i wonder what the criteria is for nominations anyway.. SHIT!!! SHAME!!

  7. now am highly impress about 9ja music we are outstanding both videos and songs writhing… .i know more talent are still coming and i my self is gonna rock when am back to 9ja am a solo artist for real coming up with a new thing.i love 2 face and dare at alade , banky w they are doing well.and that is my pertain.love ya all…….
