If what we have heard from organisers and from the grapevine is anything to go by,then the second edition of 3Music Awards is something that will linger in the minds of music lovers for a longtime to come.

3 Media Network, organizers of the prestigious annual 3 Music Awards, on February 12, 2021, announced the nominees for the 2021 edition of the awards scheme.

Dubbed the 4th, this year’s 3 Music Awards nominees list was announced virtually to comply with the prevalent COVID-19 protocols.
