The nominees for the Next Rated category
include; British-born Nigerian producer
and recording artiste, Maleek Berry , DMW
flagship act, Mayorkun , Choc City’s Dice
Ailes , Mavin Records alternative producer-
artiste, Johnny Drille and Eastern rap
sensation, Zoro .

in the Best New Artist category, defeating
Mayorkun, Dice Ailes and Small Doctor.
With all the attention on Maleek Berry and
