Most Nigerian Artists have been at the highest point of their diversions and we see no motivation behind why they shouldn’t win their classes. The assignment list which has been made open has Davido, Wizkid, Olamide, Wande Coal, Kizz Daniel, Simi, Tiwa Savage, TuFace, Falz and different artistes fight with Diamond Platnumz, Nasty C, Shekhinah for grants in various classes.
