Bez is up for Revelation of the Year, Best Vocal Performance (male) and Best Collabo; as well as Best R&B/Pop single, and Best R&B/Pop Album.

P-Square and Bez are closely followed by Wizkid, Davido and Ice Prince who grabbed four nominations each. Praiz, who continues to grow steadily as a singer, got four nominations.
