Reminder: 2011 Channel O Awards Nominees

October 12, 2011 by  

With the date for one my favourite Award shows being announced as 11 November, I thought I’d remind you who the nominees are so that you can continue voting for your favourites. Voting details when you scroll down… closing date is 27 October.

Here is a list of the nominees. Truly representative of tracks that got us “grooving” this past year.

Voting for the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards opens on Friday 19 August and closes midnight Thursday 27 October 2011. Visit www.channelo.tv to cast your votes via web or WAP. You can also vote on MXit and SMS (send your favourite artist’s code to 083 920 8406, or +27 83 920 8406 if you’re outside of South Africa). You can vote in all 14 categories as many times as you want, but only ONCE per hour.

The Awards will be held at Sandton Convention Centre on 11 November.

  5. Brown Shuga on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 12:12 am 

    Zeal, e no easy was nominated and won in 2010. I think they released Invasion a bit late for this year’s awards.

  14. Sgoloza on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 4:13 am 

    Most gifted?

    Let’s ask Pearl Nkuna, seeing she knows about “gifted” people, or was it “gifted” soccer players only?

    Professor deserves a few most def, but cabo snoop’s Windeck is a banger, one of those songs that make even the most reluctant of dancers move!

  15. dejane on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 6:26 am 

    Most gifted Southern Africa Video and video of the year should go to Khuli ft JR. That video is BAUSS. Eintlek Khuli ba month robile. He shouldve been nominated in the most gifted hip hop artist too. So many male artists nominated. Might as well have called them the most gifted male music video awards.

  16. Polly on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 7:33 am 

    I’m so loving Naija music right now, thanks to BBA. All my votes are going to them.

  37. TheSushiQueen on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 9:55 am 

    Off topic: Guys!! I’m so shocked!! This morning on Barry Hertzhog (an hour ago)two cars are speeding, a white citi golf chasing a red one at very high speed. So when they get to the robot, the driver of the white golf cuts off the red one, gets out of his car and walks over to the red one , takes out his gun and SHOOTS at the 3 passengers!!! In broad daylight!! The two men in the red car climb out and pull out their guns and start SHOOTING at the other other guy! They chase after him shooting, him shooting back, until the red car’s passenger falls over on the road in full view of everyone.. Shocking!! Tjo!!

  38. Polly on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 9:58 am 

    Yoh Sushi, it’s like you were watching a movie mos. I hope you are fine.

  39. Nkey.. on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 10:24 am 

    @ Sushi *jaw on the floor* That was hectic yong,Hope you not traumatised.I wonder what went wrong.

  40. Kusihlwa on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 10:32 am 

    @Sushi,Oh My God. did the cops come quick? what did you do?

  41. siya on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 10:40 am 

    that`s shocking, its like watching a 3D movie.

  42. Lustagp on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 10:43 am

  44. Lady gaga on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 10:52 am 

    *Off Topic* what did vivica fox do guys????

  45. TheSushiQueen on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 10:55 am 

    The one guy lay on the ground shot in the chest and the other lady passenger went to him in the middle of the road while those other two continued shooting at each other. The police came very quick I must say- some one must have called them when the guy got out his gun and was walking over to go shoot. Tjo I am shocked to the core. Guys road rage is no joke damn..

    I turned around and drove back using another route when I saw those two running after each other.. It all lasted about 5 mins or so..

    Bathong dinto tsa jerusalema so far away from hillbrow! *shocked*

  46. Lustagp on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 10:57 am 

    Haybo are you sure it’s road rage or gangsters fighting Sushi?

    But i know raod rage is rife la eMzantsi , ..

  47. kellyboogile on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 11:03 am 

    @Lady gaga there u go…TBO Touch, invited Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, and his American guests on stage for a photograph. Touch then asked Matheba and Generations actress Sonia Sedibe to join the group.

    Before long, Dlamini, Pheto and another Generations actress, Sophie Ndaba, joined the fray. As the flashbulbs went off, Fox began getting edgy, and was then seen telling the local celebrities off.

    Fox said: “Oh no, I don’t mean to be rude, but please could you get off the stage? Yes, go, get off the stage.” She gestured vigorously at them.

    Dlamini was particularly peeved, and walked off the stage.

    Norwood, in a figure-hugging bling-up dress and her hair done in a bun, was the total opposite as she greeted and waved at fans. She milked the adulation too, smiling for the cameras and waving, and showing off her legs.

  48. Pule on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 11:04 am 

    where is JG?
    Ice prince and Wizzy all the way.
    that Oleky beat is the best i have heard all year.
    the instrumentals of that song shows that the beat producer is a beast.
    Still waiting to hear from JG as i hear he has a better collection of that producers work.

    i am hoping Banana Mavoko scoops this one.

    @Kusihlwa i just copied and pasted the article from times live.i was shocked when i read it

  51. TheSushiQueen on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 11:21 am 

    Ke road rage.. White man shot at the muslim people..

    O_o at Vivica.. Lol!

  52. Pule on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 11:25 am 

    @sushi,
    sounds more like gangster than road rage.
    i know bad road rage happens in Mzansi but this looks too planned.

  53. Lady gaga on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 11:25 am 

    @Kellyboogile NO WAYS!!! why did she do that though? kanti isn’t she a nice person afterall?!!! tjo. Thanx babe.

  54. Monei on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 11:29 am 

    ooooh! i love nwa baby(remix). it does what bo windeck (and prev prakatatumba) do to me but more sensually/gentler. i.e. forces me to dance and leaves me feeling good. it actually reminds me of my childhood in botswana when kwasa-kwasa was THE thing. aaaah, good times.

    @sushi, DAMN! such trauma on a friday morning. did they get the culprit who cut them off? i hope it wasnt road rage but i can only imagine it to be that so early in the morning. coz if that happened to me….i dnt have a gun to hit back.

  55. kazisongo on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 11:41 am

    Pule- thanks I’m fine.. I’m not sure if anyone else got hurt..

    It wasn’t gangster coz it was a white man that went and shot at the other car first, which had muslim people in it- so ke nahana gore ne ele road rage..

    Mara Vivica.. She set it off their asses for sure tjo lmao!

  61. Nomaha on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 1:25 pm

    @Softie you’re scaring me.

    #TeamMamaVivica! Somebody had to put those tjatjarag celebrities in their place. I can understand why Terry would think of herself as one of the American guests even though she was in the U.S for only two minutes but bo Sophie are just too damn tjatjarag.

  71. bongi on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 2:19 pm

  73. Nomaha on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 2:36 pm 

    Nkey lowo ke yena was just trying to remain relevant. Claire Mawisa once said on twitter when we the public see celebraties we should recognise them eheee I rolled on the floor thinking recognise them and be told where to get off.

    I can understand why Terry would think of herself as one of the American guests even though she was in the U.S for only two minutes but bo Sophie are just too damn tjatjarag <—–this mara! just killed me.

They’d have shot at its tyres & windows to make the driver lose focus & the car swerve & lose control,& then be over them like eagles on a carcass…shooting every breathing thing nearby,even the birds. I know my mzansi….ooho mxim.

  90. Pule on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 4:23 pm 

    we are just enjoying it cos we don’t mind these celebs getting a taste of their own little medicine.
    apart from that it was so arrogant and snobbish of Vivica.
    what was she imagining?that the low lives were going to mug her on stage or mess up her make up or asault here in the full view of the public?
    i think she was just bein paranoid and ignorant.

  91. DexterSUPERIOR on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 4:42 pm 

    No Pule. Nobody called them to come on stage. They had to be reprimanded. Mama Vivica did a great job keeping them in their lane

  92. Pule on Fri, 19th Aug 2011 5:07 pm 

    @Dexter,i am used to your ways.
    you are fishing again.
    i agree that no one called them to the stage but what was she thinking they were going to do to her on stage?
    was the pic going to make her any less a star?
    instigate a discount in the appearance fee the minister was paying her?
    i enjoy the humuilation like you and that is why we are ordering a long bench for them on the other blog but like most of these silly stars,i think she was believing her hype too much.
