The nominations for the 3rd edition of the 3Music Awards were announced on January 30, 2020.

Leading the nomination for this year’s edition is rapper Sarkodie.

The 2019 Artiste of the Decade swept 13 awards with his works including ones from his just-released album ‘Black Love’.

Sarkodie was nominated under the award scheme’s biggest category ‘Song of the Year’ with ‘Saara’ which features songstress Efya.

He was also nominated for the Male Act of The Year, Hiplife/Hip-hop Act of The Year, Video of The Year, Hiplife Song of the Year, Hip-hop Song of the Year, Best Collaboration of the Year, Afrobeat/Afropop Song of the Year, Fan Army of the Year, Digital Act of the Year, Best Rap Performance, Best Performer of the Year.

Sarkodie was nominated twice in the Hip-hop Song of the Year with Bleeding and Biibi Ba. ‘Saara’ featuring Efya alone earned him three nominations while ‘Biibi Ba’ gathered two.

Dancehall artistes Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy followed closely with 10 nominations each.

The two were nominated side-by-side in about five categories including Reggae/Dancehall Act of the Year, Reggae/Dancehall Song of the Year, Best Performer of the Year, Male Act of the Year and the biggest award on the night Song of the Year.
