Following his impact on the African music scene, Nigerian singer D'Banj has been nominated among some of the most iconic performers across the continent for the MAMAs 2015 Evolution award to be presented this weekend at KwaZulu Natal in South Africa.

Commented Tim Horwood, Channel Director, MTV Base, "The MAMA "Evolution" award honours established artistes who have made an indelible mark on African and global music culture, taken African music to new territories around the world, pushed the boundaries of creativity, and shaped the soundscape of contemporary Africa."
The winner of the Evolution award will be decided jointly by MTV Base and music fans voting online, and via Twitter and Instagram.
