AKA and DJ Black Coffee once again go against each other in the Best Male Act category.

Following the MTV Africa Music Awards nominees announcement on Wednesday night, Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula announced he also received a nomination.

On Twitter, Mbalula thanked MTV for the “nomination of the best upcoming never to be heared (sic) album”.

Although that was only a joke.

Mamas will celebrate talent across 18 award categories, including Best Male, Best Female and Best Collaboration. Additional categories include the Africa Re-Imagined Award and Personality of the Year.

The live event, set to take place at the Ticketpro dome in October, will feature live performances from Yemi Alade, Nasty C, Babes Wodumo, Ycee, Alikiba and Cassper Nyovest.
