President Uhuru Kenyatta is still keeping tabs with the local music industry.

On Sunday, he showed some love for Sauti Sol through his official Twitter handle.

MTV nominated 4 artists across Africa, namely: Davido (Nigeria), Goldfish(South Africa), Diamond (Tanzania) and Toofan (Togo). They then gave fans the opportunity to nominate a fifth artist on Twitter.

All you had to do was include two hashtags in your tweet, #MTVEMA and #Nominate(insert artist).

6 choices were provided, and this is where Sauti Sol came in.

Sauti Sol – #NominateSautiSol

Anselmo Ralph – #NominateAnselmoRalph

Gangs of Ballet – #NominateGangsOfBallet

Mafikizolo – #NominateMafikizolo

Sarkodie – #NominateSarkodie

Tiwa Savage – #NominateTiwaSavage

Voting ended yesterday and now we can just wait for the results.

This is the fifth year that MTV has included a Best African Act category in the EMA – previous winners have included 2Face (2005), Freshlyground (2006), D’Banj (2007 & 2012) and LCNVL (2013).

The 2014 MTV EMA will broadcast LIVE on MTV on Sunday, November 9 at 10pm CAT from The Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland (pre-show from 9pm CAT).
