Award-winning colloqua singer DenG has made history again by becoming the first Liberian artist to receive an MTV Africa Music Award (MAMA) nomination.
DenG, who is widely recognized for hot Afro bangers like “Kemah” and “Put Foot,” was nominated in the “Listener’s Choice” award category along with other hit makers like BeBe Cool and Prince Kayee, just to name a few.
Although DenG has made a big impression for Liberia’s struggling entertainment industry with this nomination, it is still unclear if he will be attending the event in Johannesburg.
Also, as things stand, the catchy colloqua hits-maker, who turned 32 this year, does not seem to be doing much publicity to encourage his fans to vote for him.
Lastly, he has remained mute to the media of late for reasons best known to himself.
This year’s award will feature performances from African and international artists, exemplifying the show’s signature cross-genre and cross-border collaborations.
The 2016 MTV Base Awards will celebrate African talents across 17 categories, including Best Male, Best Female, Best Song and Best Collaboration.
Since the MTV Base Awards started in 2008, it has continued to recognize the talents of musicians, achievers and personalities from across Africa, including 2Face Idibia, Big Nuz, D’ Banj, Mafikizolo and Sarkodie, just to name a few.
