NOMINEE: Bebe Cool

Just when Ugandans had lost all hopes of being a part of this year’s spin of the MAMA 2016 (besides Eddy Kenzo’s live act nomination), by some sort of happenstance, the second round of nominees gets announced and Dancehall diva Sheebah Karungi’s Kisasi Kimu is competing for Video of Year accolade. She however faces stiff competition from;

 “Jump” – Anatii & Cassper feat. Nasty C (South Africa); Director: Kyle Lewis

“If I Start to Talk” – Tiwa Savage feat. Dr Sid (South Africa); Director: Clarence Peters
