VIACOM International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa and MTV Base, all available on DStv and GOtv, are once again highlighting the “gold standard” in music, creativity and achievement at the sixth edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA).
The MAMA Johannesburg 2016, courtesy of Joburg Tourism, in association with Absolut, will broadcast live from The Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg, South Africa on October 22.
The definitive annual celebration of African and international talent and achievement, MAMA 2016 recognises and rewards musicians and achievers who have made the most impact on African music and youth culture over the previous year.
According to a statement made available to the Weekend Mail in Lusaka by MultiChoice Zambia, the ceremony will feature stunning performances from African and international artistes along with the show’s signature cross-genre and crossborder collaborations.
First staged in 2008, the MAMA’s have recognised the talent of musicians, achievers and personalities from across Africa.
Alex Okosi, senior vice president and managing director of Viacom International Media Networks Africa says they are thrilled that the MTV Africa Music Awards will be taking place in Johannesburg, City of Gold, for the first time.
And Monde Twala, the vice-president, BET, Youth and Music, VIMN Africa, says the sixth edition of the MAMA promises to be their biggest and most ambitious yet.
Celebrating the pan-African scope of the MAMA, the awards will encompass two stunning Road to MAMA events featuring MAMA nominees and superstar DJs, to be held in Durban and Lagos. Another much-anticipated element of MAMA 2016 will be a music industry workshop for aspiring musicians held on the day prior to the awards.
