Hey! its that time of the year again. The Nominees list for the Soundcity Music Video Awards (SMVA) is out. This list obviously expresses the fact that once more soundcity has broadened its scope to include more of Africa. I bet in a few years The SMVAs would be global in the real sense. The awards is scheduled to hold on the 20th of November, 2010 at The Expo Hall, Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
