Nadia Mukami and Sauti Sol have earned a slot in the round one of BET nominations and Tanzanian award-winning singer Harmonize.

Nadia Mukami took to social media to celebrate the news with her fans. She stated that she was humbled that she was chosen stating that she prays that she makes it to the final nomination. “Meanwhile, I have been selected for round 1 of BET nominations alongside Sauti Sol, Harmonize, I pray we make it to the final Nomination list! But my heart is humbled by the fact they thought of Nadia Mukami. Mimi Nadia wa Mwihoko. That means the brand is growing! I really thank God and I’m grateful for this favor,” She posted.

In an interview with NTV’s The Trend show host Amina Abdi she claimed that she dated singer Arrow Boy for almost a year but things did not work out and they went separate ways. However, weeks later, Arrow Boy stated that the only Nadia he knew was the one that featured him on her hit song dubbed Radio Love. Despite not confirming if the two ever dated, he urged the songbird to concentrate on her music and not sideshows.

Recently, a woman on Facebook came up with allegations that Nadia conned her after she gave her a new gig. She went on to claim that the singer was a lesbian and was sleeping with her female manager. This prompted the singer to take a break from social media and involved her management which directed the lady to pull down the post and offer a public apology to its client.

Nadia wrote on her Instagram timeline.

BET awards are very strict on merit and the panel only chooses the best artists in their field. Which shows that Mukami is indeed proving her worth in the entertainment industry.


Shaffie Weru who joined BET Academy representing East Africa said, “This is about being an academy of the top minds in Entertainment and choosing the best artistes in each category,” when speaking to Word Is.

The official dates for the BET awards are yet to be announced.

Many fans have crossed their fingers hoping that the ‘nikune’ hitmaker Nadia Mukami gets to the final round and raise the flag for African female artists.

Wizkid from Nigeria holds the title for the most wins in this category.

He got his first award in 2010 and second in 2017. Over the years he has also received the most nominations, 4.

Other artists who have previously held the title include Burna Boy from Nigeria 2019, Davido from Nigeria 2018, Stonebwoy from Ghana 2015, Ice Prince from Nigeria in 2013.
