The only category not voted for by Channel O viewers is the Special Recognition, which this year is being awarded to Nigerian R&B duo P-Square.
Twin brothers Peter and Paul Okoye, are being honoured for their significant artistic contributions to music, which have helped place African music and its artists firmly on international stages.
