The Music and Entertainment Gospel Awards, (MEGA), will open Public Voting for pre-nominees in the 2020 edition of the annual event on Saturday, October 10, 2020. 

MEGA

MEGA’s National Screening Committee carefully selected all pre-nominees and now the public will be allowed to have a say in the final nominee list. The Nigerian public will have the opportunity to vote a choice for every category on a single platform, Facebook. This year, votes will be in only four award categories namely, Singles, Medleys, Album, and Main Categories.      

The processes for the awards of MEGA are heavily skewed towards quality and meaningfulness, as determined by the Judges. However, listeners/fans are allowed to express their affection for their favourites by voting. All votes (one vote for one account on Facebook alone) for each Pre-NOMINEE in any category will amount to 20% in the final collation. This means that Popularity makes up 20% of the decision for a winner per category. While Originality, Melody, Production, Quality & Composition/Message are aggregated make up 80%.
