We have just scooped that KORA Awards would be taking place this year. The host Ernest Adjovi who was thought to be troubled after his arrest last year has announced that Chris Brown would be the international guest for this year’s December 29th edition. It would take place in Côte d’Ivoire this year. The organizer Ernest Adjovi and his team will be at Palais des congrès of Hôtel Ivoire, on December 29 for the Kora Awards 2012.
Adjovi struck a deal with the Cross River State Government to host the 2008 edition of the awards in Tinapa, Cross River and was said to have been paid an upfront of $2.5M (Two Million and five hundred Thousand Dollars) but after the annulment of Gov. Liyel Imoke’s election, Adjovi allegedly dumped the State and entered a fresh deal with Lagos State Government. He was then arrest in August, last year.
D’Banj, Omawumi, Davido, Fuse ODG, Skuufo, King Ayiso, Nana Koo Nimo are nominated for this year’s KORA award.
