Already two frontline entertainers, Basketmouth and Tiwa Savage have been pencilled down to host this year’s award ceremony.
The NMVA is Nigeria’s premier music video awards with the sole aim of rewarding outstanding creators and contributors to music videos production. It was instituted on December 2, 2007.

Since 2007, five successful editions have held consecutively at the prestigious Expo Hall of Eko Hotel & Suites in Victoria Island Lagos. The NMVA has established benchmarks against mediocrity as well as rewarding excellence over the years. Rhythms & Sounds brings to you exclusively what to expect from this year’s award
