According to a statement signed by the awards CEO, Ayo Animashaun, top on the list are amazing rave of the moment Abolore Akande popularly known as 9ice, Lyricist and rapper MI, new kid on the block Kel, and rising female singer Omawumi.

Others are Lord of Ajasa, Darey Art Alade, Banky W, 2face Idibia and rested loose coalition- ‘Da trybe’ comprising of Eldee , Del , KB, Sasha, 2shotz, Freestyle and Blaise.

Banky W who first hit lime light in 2007 with ‘Ebutte Metta’ will thrill fans with songs off his debut album ‘Mr. Capable’, and select singles off his upcoming sophomore album

9ice will perform his hit song- ‘Gongo Aso’, and there is no doubt he will excite fans the way he did last year. Darey Art Alade will make his first major performance of his hit single ‘Not the girl’

‘This year’s awards is going to be exceptional, there will be so much excitement people should look forward to more exciting performances this year, I am so sure the crowd will find it exciting seeing Da Trybe on stage again, they have not performed together for a long time, every one has been busy doing their own thing, where else will they be reuniting if not on our stage?’ Ayo Animashaun says.

Already tagged ‘a prize to die for’, this year’s awards will hold at the International conference centre Abuja on Saturday May 16 and will be hosted by Banky W and Kemi Adetiba.

Even though there are indications that some foreign acts will be performing at the awards ceremony. Animashaun says- ‘we have promised you an award that matches international standards he insists ‘The ceremony promises to be full of surprises and it’s going to be the first of its kind’ he explains. ‘If there is any gospel the award has preached over the years, it is the power of Possibilities’. He re- assures again.

Last year, 9ice thrilled the crowd and brought the roof down with Gongo Aso. In 2006, Dbanj dazzled the fans when he appeared on stage with a towel.

The awards ceremony, which will be officially sponsored by MTN and Lipton will commence with the yellow carpet ceremony.
