According to the producer of the awards, Osein Olakunle, artistes and record labels must send in their entries to be considered for nomination and other conditions for submission of songs are...

This is very important as non-submission of the materials will render the participant ineligible for nomination; Artistes must not submit music materials created by other individuals, to do so they must own the copyright to such materials.
Other criteria includes: Music materials that endorse /encourage fraud, alcohol abuse, narcotics and wanton sex are not eligible for submission, except said material(s) have radio edited versions; All submitted eligible materials are considered for nomination, regardless of who submitted them; Non-Nigerian creators (including artistes, producers and music video directors) are not eligible for nomination, and artwork/studio picture and biography/profile must follow each entry.
