The Nigerian artist’s sentiments are echoed by AKA. “I am very honoured to co-host this celebration of Africa’s finest talent with Naeto C. I won my first Channel O Music Video award in 2011 and two years later, being in this position is testament to my loyal following. Thank you to Channel O and the fans, it’s going to be a classic night,” he says.

Naeto C has enjoyed a lengthy association with the Channel O Africa Music Video Awards. In 2009 he won the highly coveted Video of the Year award for his blowout hit, Ki Ni Big Deal. In 2010 the track Ako Mi Ti Poju saw him take home the Most Gifted Hip Hop Video award and a year later, Most Gifted African West Video was awarded to 10 Over 10.
