Davido has been nominated in the ‘Best International Performance’ category for his ground-breaking song ‘Aye’ at the 2014 Soul Train Awards set to be held on November 7, 2014 in Las Vegas. He is the only African on the list.
Chris Brown is the top nominee for the Soul Train Awards. The R&B singer may have had a series of legal issues as of late, but he’s managed to rack up seven nominations, including best R&B/soul male artist and song of the year for “Loyal” off his hit album “X.” Beyonce earned six nominations and Pharrell Williams followed with five.
With no less than 5 major awards in 2014 including the BET Awards for Best International act and the MTV Africa Awards Artiste of the Year, Davido appears at this point the African favorite to clinch the awards.
