Chris Brown In Cote D’Ivoire

After many years in South Africa, a missed trial in Nigeria followed by an edition in Burkina Faso then another pause due to the post election crisis in Côte d’Ivoire, the Kora Awards are back in Côte d’Ivoire.

The organizer Ernest Adjovi and his team will be at Palais des congrès of Hôtel Ivoire, on December 29 for the Kora Awards 2012. For this “resurrection” of the Kora, Ernest Adjovi sees big. Just as in the good old days with Michael Jackson and Myriam Makéba on stage, this time he is bringing Chris Brown.

Meanwhile the nominations for the 12th edition of the awards are out and Ghana is grabbed four. Fuse ODG of the popular Azonto fame is up for Best Male Artist in West Africa, Skuufo is up for Best Male Gospel and King Ayisoba and Agya Koo Nimo are both up for Best Traditional Male Artist. Nigeria is also well represented with the likes of DBanj, Omawumi, Davido and others. Below is the full list of nominees:
