The Knight House (Best Rap single, Best Collabo)
Our nomination for the award is a big deal.. Weâ€™re grateful for the very big honour. Even if we donâ€™t win, itâ€™s still going to be a very big honour. We didnâ€™t expect the nomination. This is our first nomination for the Hip-Hop Award. Weâ€™re sure that thereâ€™s at least one headie with our name on it already.
Terry Tha Rapman
(Best Collabo, Best Rap Single)
Iâ€™ve had nominations in the HHWA in the past. I know I have to win this time. The expectation is high this year. Iâ€™m looking forward to winning and what the organisers will do differently this time. I noticed that theyâ€™re taking it to a different dimension. But Iâ€™m very confident now compared to the previous times.
(Song of the Year, Best Street Hop)
When we saw the acceptance of our song during the year, we expected a lot afterwards and one of these is nominations in the Hip Hop World Awards. Weâ€™re optimistic that weâ€™ll get at least one out of the two nominations.
Kefee (Best Collabo, Best Vocal Performance Female, Best Pop Single)
Kokoroko (the song for which sheâ€™s nominated) had a total of six nominations and four awards last year. And I have four nominations so far this year (including a Best Music Video nomination whose award goes to the director of the song).
Iâ€™â€˜m elated and excited. Iâ€™m expecting to win on May 29 because everything is possible and I want people to vote for me. Iâ€™ll like to collect all the awards. This is my first nomination for the Hip-Hop Award and I think the innovation behind the Award is a good one.
The award ceremony will hold at the Eko Hotel & Suite, Lagos on May 29, 2010.
