Channel O Music Video Awards Nominees

Written by Segololo from the blog TeleSegolic View Vision on 24 Jul 2008
Favourite this post


As this function was just a media announcement for the awards, there were no famous celebs or artists so the real reason we were all there was to get the list and announce it. It was very refreshing to see KB (Krazy Boy) Ngakane, my dear Biggie buddie, and reminisce about Biggie Motherland 2007 and try to squeeze any news for Biggie Motherland 2008 from him.

Back to what I need to announce… Yolisa Phahle, Channel O’s General manager made the presentation and announcement.

Background
The Channel O Video Awards are 5 years old.

The nominees are pulled from videos being sent, seen and requested on Channel O from the 1st June 2007 until 31st May 2008.

There are 14 categories; 13 public votes’ categories and a secretive “Special Recognition award”

The Best Newcomer is not necessarily a new act or artist, it is the first video received by Channel O for an artist.

The quality of videos reviewed this past year has improved; budget and content, however the challenge is not to remake videos from other countries (such as the USA) but give an original storyline and improved technology.

The Red Carpet Event
The big event will happen on the 9th October at Carnival City. Things like space, air conditioning, electronic sign-in (or something like that) and VIP parking were mentioned and I remembered Shugs experience at last years awards ceremony. Shugs, this year they are going big and have a huge sponsor (Amarula) so you won’t be disappointed. AND the press release mentioned “lessons learnt from last year”

The event will be themed and will emphasise the need for Africa to Unite, so the slogan is “Uniting Africa Through Music”. This theme was inspired by the recent xenophobic attacks.

It will be a VIP event, invites only, however there will be limited number of tickets available via Computicket for the general public.

All the nominees will be flown in, and hopefully they clear their calendars now for this

The host and performers have been confirmed, however, will be announced later. This was a bummer for me because it felt like being given a box of chocolates and when you open the box you find a half-stick of biltong. Why not announce as much as possible, not just the nominees?
Anyways, all we were given was the host is a big personality so I wondered if it was a literal or figurative “big”. Who do you think it could be?

Your part
The general public votes for their fave artist in each of the 13 category via sms (+27839208400) or on the Channel O website (www.channelo.tv ). Keep in mind that Standard international sms rates will apply.

The voting begins on the 24th July at 17:00 until the 24th September.

I love the pot belly video, although I don't see the relation to the song much. But it's simple and tells a story.

arbitery in that sense that they are a bit meaningless for me.what clout or importance does the channel o video awards really hold? 
i think even the defunct duku duku awards had more prestige than channel o awards even the kora's.I know their are modelled on the VMA awards done by Mtv but truely speakng are they having the same impact on the continent than te VMA?
to even proof my point there was more buzz around the african category at the european vma than theres is now on the entire awards?
or am i the only one who feels this way?im not in the music industry but do people actually care about these awards though?

Tsho Sego, that song is too tight, it makes you just want to do things you didn't know you could do! But as for the video, couple of chicks going low...eish, but what could they do?
