The category which is one of the newest ones created at the awards, where the winner is determined by a voting process opened to the public pitched her up with talents like, Kwesi Arthur (Ghana), Sjava (South Africa), Mc Soffia (Brazil) and Nailah Blackman (Trinidad and Tobago).
Others nominated in the category are Not3S (UK), Prince Waly (France), Sik-k (South Korea), TakeAMic (France) and IAMDDB (UK).
