Diamond Platinumz and pals after scooping the awards

In what may be seen as the continued stagnation of Uganda music, there was again no local winner from the 2014 Channel O Music Video Awards that were completely dominated by South African acts. Ugandan nominees that included rapper Navio and Eddy Kenzo were all left empty handed as Tanzania new boy Diamond Platinumz swept all the East Africa accolades.
Interestingly Nigeria was also at a huge loss as singer Davido who had been tipped before the ceremony to be a big winner as he had 5 nominations walked home with none.
Channel O Music Video awards took place on Saturday, 29th November, in South Africa and saw many artistes get recognized for their great video works in different categories.
Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz and South Africa’s Cassper Nyovest scooped the highest number of awards each bagging three awards. Among the other winners were Tiwa Savage, KCEE, Olamide Badoo.
