MANILA, Philippines – Kabog! The nominees for the 2022 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) are in, and Maymay Entrata is the only Filipino act who made it to the list.

The “Amakabogera” singer is among the five nominees under the Best Asia Act category, which also includes Indonesia’s NIKI, South Korea’s TOMORROW x TOGETHER, Thailand’s SILVY, and Japan’s THE RAMPAGE from EXILE TRIBE.

Following the announcement, Maymay took to social media to express her delight over being nominated. “A huge thank you to MTV EMAs for recognizing my song and giving me the privilege to be with the other amazing artists nominated in this category,” she wrote. 

She also thanked her fans, whom she called “kabogeras.” “Hindi tayo aabot dito kung hindi dahil po sa inyo (We wouldn’t have gotten this far if it weren’t for you),” she said. 

Fellow celebrities like Janine Berdin, Janine Gutierrez, and Sofia Pablo congratulated Maymay on the nomination. 

The Best Southeast Asia Act award was added to the EMAs in 2013. Local EMA categories provide viewers and fans the chance to pick the best local act in their region.

Past Filipino nominees include SB19, Ben&Ben, Nadine Lustre, James Reid, Moira dela Torre, and Sarah Geronimo. Geronimo was nominated thrice, and won the award in 2014. 

Fans can start voting for Maymay on MTV EMA’s website starting Wednesday, October 12, until November 9. The 2022 awards night will happen in Germany on November 13 (November 14 in the Philippines) and will be broadcast live on MTV’s channels. 

Harry Styles led this year’s nominees with seven nods, including Best Artist, Best Video, and Best Song, followed by Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Rosalia. The full list of nominees can be found here

Maymay, 24, entered showbiz through Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7, where she was hailed as the edition’s Big Winner. Since then, she has starred in several movies and teleseryes, and has even released digital singles. She has also walked international fashion shows. – Rappler.com
