TooXclusive returns with the 6th edition of her annual online music awards.

The nominations list has been officially released, and it previews all the nominees featured in the various voting categories for the 2017 TX Awards.

The year 2017 showed a lot of dynamism-in-prospect with talents and new terrains in music being explored. This is what gave rise to two new categories featured on this season’s nominations list, which was to allow for a more robust experience in recognizing the forms of talent shown in their either unusual design or individualistic order.

The viewing of this list has been made possible sequel to the critical review of the category selections made by the music team, a cross vetting from our in-house and associate editors, and final approval from the company’s managing board.
