MAMA 2018 FULL WINNERS LIST- PREDICTIONS

10

On November 1, the 2018 Mnet Asian Music Awards announced the list of nominees and the winning criteria for major awards.

The awards show will start off at Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Korea on December 10 and then continue to Japan at Saitama Super Arena on December 12. The finale on December 14 will once again be in Hong Kong at AsiaWorld-Expo Arena.





For a group or a soloist to receive a nomination, their songs/albums must be released within the period of October 18, 2017, to October 31, 2018.

So I thought it would be a good idea to share my own predictions of who could be the winners of 2018 MAMA.

Of course, as the title hints, these are only my own predictions of what I feel Mnet will choose. I don’t agree with some of the choices I am about to tell you but I have a feeling this will be what they choose.
