Unlike last year, this year's MLMA is dominated by lots of rising artists like T. Floyd, JSlught, MC Caro, and Barsee Mocopala Kiloda.

According to Chris Wolo, nominations for the awards begin with the filling in of entry forms by technical people who then submit it to the advisory committee for further scrutiny, to ensure the quality of the nomination.

Mr. Wolo who is the awards' nomination committee chair, added that the work of the awards' advisory committee, comprising experts in the various fields of music, is to screen nominations for eligibility and category placement, as well as determine the five finalists in each category.

"The essence of the screenings is to make artistic or technical judgments about the recordings and make sure that each entry is eligible and placed in its proper category," Mr Wolo added.
