MY MUSIC

ABMA (Afowzo B'da Music Awards) 2015 Nominees


Hi everyone, its another year in music (wow its been that long already *sigh) and every year brings with it an array of earth shattering records (from songs I merely stumbled on to Chart topping hits). The point is this annual awards celebrate songs and artists that have caught and held my attention within the past twelve months (... and the fact that I get older and hopefully wiser ever year).
I cant believe this is the sixth edition of this! the driving force is the music. hopefully with this list, you get to listen to artists and songs that you may have missed out on in the past year and you get to know my overall musical sensibilities as far as last year goes. If you've ever gone through previous editions, you know a constant is that I always add new categories; this year is no different as the pop and RandB categories have been split into 2 and a brand new "EP" category has been added to make room for the abundance of dope records iv come across. Enough of all that, check it all out here:
(PS. That's me and the very talented TemiDOLLface, who is also a nominee this year)
