- As MTV Base Unveils Panel To Select “MTV Base Hottest Naija Tracks Of 2016”
Africa’s hottest music television network, MTV Base, has announced the return of the MTV Base Roundtable, the most hotly debated music list in Nigerian entertainment. Tagged #BaseHottestNaijaTracks2016, the 2-part show will debate and showcase the best Nigerian songs of 2016 before just 10 are picked in the year’s ultimate music countdown.
To decide the year’s biggest tracks, MTV Base has put together a panel of music industry heavyweights and tastemakers, including influential radio presenters, journalists, bloggers and social media influencers. On this year’s panel are: Senior Associate, Pulse NG, Ayomide Tayo; Publisher, Mystreetz Magazine, Sesan Adeniji; OAP 97.3 Classic FM, Buki Sawyerr Izeogu; OAP Beat 99.9 FM, Douglas Jekan; A&R Entertainment Consultant, Bizzle Osikoya; Artiste Manager & CEO Stargaze Management Company, Asa Asika and former MTV Base and OAP of City FM, Cynthia “Cvon” Okpala.
To qualify for inclusion in this year’s list, songs must have been released no earlier than November 2015; and will be weighed according to a range of criteria – from impact in the media, to level of “buzz”, and longevity.
The news comes in what has been a massive year for the Nigerian music industry, with artists receiving massive international recognition, signing global deals, and featuring on huge international hits. At this year’s MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA), Nigerian artistes Wizkid, Yemi Alade, Wande Coal, Patoranking and Tekno walked away with honours.
MTV Base Roundtable: Naija’s Hottest Songs of 2016 will be unveiled exclusively on MTV Base (DSTV Channel 322) in two parts, on 15 and 16 December at 16:00 WAT.
