The nominees for the MTV Africa Music Awards are out.

South Africa dominates most of the awards with nominees in pretty much every category.

The event is on 18 July in KwaZulu-Natal and tickets go on sale on Computicket on 18 June.

And no, there isn’t a nominee from Zimbabwe.

We just hope they do not have a weird American host who comes all the way to make fun of us and can’t pronounce our names like they did last tme.

Anyway, here they are
