Who won the most Channel O awards?
As the 10th Annual Channel O Africa Music Video Awards draw closer, Channel O has decided to go down memory lane to discover which country and artist has won the most awards to date.
Judging by the amount of previous winners from the Channel O awards, Nigerian artists rule the roost in the African music video genre with the most winners overall.
West African musicians in general have been dominating the awards with a plethora of winners from Ghana and Nigeria.
At the apex of the pyramid, P Square, D’Banj and Buffalo Souljah are tied in first position looking down on all others with an incredible five Channel O awards.
Coming in second is Lizha James from Mozambique with four awards.
South of the equator, Gal Level, Gazza and The Dogg have all scooped at least two awards respectively to raise that Namibian flag high.
Teargas and Liquideep are the only South African artists to have won more than once with their wins in 2010 and 2011.
The scarcity of repeat winners in each category is a testament to the rigorous competitiveness in the African music industry.
Voting for this year’s Channel O awards is done by SMS or tweeting.
Voting closes on Thursday, 21 November at 00:00 CAT. Don’t forget to tweet with the hash tag #CHOAMVA.
