Nigerian pair in Kids’ Choice Awards
Child comedienne Emmanuella and popular musician Davido, both from Nigeria, have been nominated for the 31st Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
Emmanuella and Davido are nominees in the international award category of Favourite African Star. The other African nominees are: Eddy Kenz (Uganda), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania), Cassper Nyovest (South Africa) and Caster Semenya (South Africa).

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards will be held in California on March 24 and aired live on Nickelodeon, available in Africa via DStv channel 305, and Nick Toons, on DStv channel 308. It will be hosted by John Cena.
