Nyashinski is the second Kenyan artist after Sauti Sol to be nominated for MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMA). The flourishing singer has been nominated in the same category – Best African Act which Sauti Sol won in 2014.
For starters, the 2017 MTV EMAs will be held at The SSE Arena in Wembley, London, UK, on 12th November 2017. The host of this ceremony will be British superstar Rita Ora.
Nyashinski is facing stiff competition from Nigeria’s Wizkid and Davido, South Africa’s Babes Wodumo and Nasty C and Angola’s C4 Pedro, who have all been nominated for the same prize.
Sauti Sol has since started ‘campaigning’ for Nyashinski. The quartet marshalled their fans on social media to vote for the ‘Malaika’ hit maker in a bid to make him became to second Kenyan artiste to win the coveted award.
“Massive S/O to the real King ?. You are one of the most naturally gifted and hardworking artists from the continent. Your humility and work ethic is something that we can all emulate. Congratulations on your MTV EMA #BestAfricanAct. When we were nominated, you guys helped us win it. It’s Nyashinski’s turn now. Let’s bring it home. He is the only East African representative this year. Voting is now open, log on to http://www.mtvema.com/en-africa/vote#best-african-act and VOTE as many times as you can. ???” Wrote Sauti Sol.
