Cameroon – MAMA: Magasco and Franko nominated for the MTV Africa Music Awards

Written by Deckson N.

Magasco and Franko are the only two Cameroonians to be contesting for an award in the MTV Africa Music Awards. Unlike last year where we saw Stanley Enow and Jovi who are considered as rap gods in 237, they didn’t make it this year.

Franko has more chances to come back with an award as he’s nominated in three different categories (SONG OF THE YEAR IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GOOGLE, BEST BREAKTHROUGH ACT, BEST FRANCOPHONE) unlike his fellow Magasco who is only nominated in the BEST FRANCOPHONE category, It’s worth to know that these Cameroonians has worked really harder to reach this level, and this is their first time ever to be nominated in a MAMA awards, something Cameroonians should be proud of, considering the fact that some years back, we were never featuring in such events.

So why not join hands and vote for theme massively? Go HERE and vote for them massively.
