    Although Ghana isn’t really in contention for any major awards yet again in the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs), the country is not going to be left out of the experience entirely. We still stand a chance to grab some laurels in Nairobi come, October 10.

    To start with, Africa’s Dancehall King, Samini for the second year running has been nominated in the Best Performer category. Again he faces stiff competition from some of the best Africa has to offer, including P-Square, D’Banj, Nameless, and Blu 3. To increase Samini’s chances of winning this one for Ghana, text ‘BP SAMINI’ to short code 6262 via your phones. Or vote online at www.mama.mtvbase.com or mtvmama.mobi.

    In the Listeners’ Choice category, Samini’s hit song ‘My Baby’ will join Kwaw Kesse’s ‘Who Be You featuring Professor Jay’ to battle  it out for the radio hit of the year. They are competing with Nigerians Naeto C, P-Square and D’Banj. To vote for Samini text ‘LCD to 1773. To vote for Kwaw Kesse text ‘LCC’ to 1773. You could even win a dream holiday for four people to Kenya, staying at Ol Seki  Mara Camp and Almanara Beach Resort, so get texting for Ghana!

    There is also the opportunity for one of three amateur singers from Ghana to make an appearance at the main event in Nairobi via the My Video contest. The three finalists from Ghana are Daniel Angelo Remi, Jemima Nyame and Anita Akuffo. To vote for your favorite contestant, text ‘MV A’ for Daniel, ‘MV B’ for Jemima and ‘MV C’ for Anita to 6262.

    Finally, the general public would also get the chance to be a apart of the MAMA experience by attending the Road to MAMA Ghana event at Citizen Kofi on October 3. This would feature top Ghanaian acts like Sarkodie, R2bees and Richie. They would be joined by Nigerian breakthrough act, Wande Coal of ‘Bumper to Bumper’ fame.

    The 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards with Zain include performances by Wyclef Jean, AY, Lira, Blu 3, Fally Ipupa, Wahu, Samini, Da L.E.S, M.I, Lizha James. Further performers and guest presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
