Camidoh will find it tough to win
As Camidoh's camp jubilates over the nomination and potential BET award, Music In Africa's Myers Hansen has called for caution.
In a chat with YEN.com.gh, the music journalist noted that Camidoh will be coming up against some real giants and may find it difficult to win.
"I think Nigeria's Asake could stand in Camidoh's way and maybe Labianca from Cameroon. In this regard, I will suggest we keep our celebrations modest so we don't get disappointed if things don't go as planned," he said.

He added that being nominated for the Artiste of the Year meant Camidoh was a step closer to winning the ultimate award.
