The difference with WAKI OPM Music Awards from Myx Music Awards and other music award-giving bodies is that only 100% Pinoy creations were eligible to compete meaning revivals and tagalized versions and the likes were disqualified.

It’s also interesting to note that no GMA (kapuso) artist was even nominated in the WAKI OPM Awards.
