Mixtape Fridays – Sound City Music Video Awards


Its Friday, so another day for Mixtape Fridays where I decided to showcase some of the nominees on one category for the Africa Sound City Music Video Awards, since I realized we have tons of video enthusiasts that visit the site. With so many awards shows across Africa, I cannot really keep track of what’s what’s and also vouch for the “authenticity” of some of the award shows, but on the flip side, at least they are giving artists some kudos for their great work. According to Sound City the awards “are aimed at recognizing and rewarding deserving artistes as well as directors and producers of music videos in and from the continent with an emphasis on creativity, innovation and interpretation of the concepts in song for the screen”. The awards will be held in 20 November 2010 and you can vote for your favorite picks on the various categories here

For best male video the nominees are

1. Lay Away- Sarkodie (Ghana)
