Forget about the MTV Europe Music Award, or the BET Awards 2015, for best African Act and Best African Pop Group respectively.
Ever heard of the Nickelodeon Kids´ Choice Awards (KCA´s)?
The Kenyan band, Sauti Sol, has made it public that they are up for contention for the 2019 Nickelodeon Kid´s Choice Awards.
Woe unto them if they don´t bring it home. Just kidding.
Anyway, based on recent occurrences, it would not be a mistake to believe that this award is theirs to bring home.
¨We are pleased to announce that we´ve been nominated for the NICKELODEON KIDS CHOICE AWARDS as the FAVORITE AFRICAN STARS.
To vote, use the hashtag #KCA + #VoteSautiSol.¨ read their post.
Other notable African nominees include Davido, who was nominated in the favorite Global Music Star Category to compete against BLACKPINK (Asia), Troye Sivan (Australia/New Zealand), David Guetta (Europe), Taylor Swift (North America), J Balvin (Latin America) and HRVY (UK).
The Favorite African Star category, has the ¨Live and Die in Africa¨ hitmakers up against Stonebwoy (Ghana), radio personality IK Osakioduwa (Nigeria) and actress Adesua Etomi (Nigeria).
The Awards ceremony is to be held on 23rd March 2019, at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California.

The Nickelodeon Kids´ Choice Awards is an annual American children´s awards ceremony show, produced by Nickelodeon.
The show usually honors the year´s biggest music, television and movie acts as voted globally by viewers of Nickelodeon networks.
Bet you not, stars the likes of Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande are just but a few of those who have been right through these awards shows.
The show reaches out mainly to teenagers, an advantage to the stars featured, whose popularity and reach might go way beyond.
We all know that Sauti Sol have never been a disappointment, if anything, they carry the Kenyan flag high.
