They are nominated alongside; 2Face Idibia (Nigeria), Toya Delazy (South Africa), Donald (South Africa), Ice Prince (Nigeria), R2Bees (Ghana) in the same category.

It is the first time Ugandans have made it to the nomination list of the prestigious BET that recognizes the best of the best in American music especially for the black community.

This nomination comes on the heels of the Obudde concert the duo launched last weekend that drew huge crowds and it is testament that the crew have set the sky as their limit and even if they do not win the spot, the nomination recognizes their talent.

American rapper Drake leads the nominations for the BET Awards ’13. The Young Money rapper scores 12 nominations at this year’s show. The 26-year-old is nominated five times in the Video of the Year category for his own singles “Started From the Bottom” and the Lil Wayne-assisted “HYFR,” plus collaborations with Kendrick Lamar (“Poetic Justice”), 2 Chainz (“No Lie”), and A$AP Rocky (“Fu**in’ Problems”).
