The MTV MAMA Awards took place this past Saturday (7th June) at the Durban National Conference Centre South Africa and from the response across social media the show was a good one!

Hosted by Marlon Wayans the show boasted performances from the likes of, Sarkodie & Miguel, Dr Sid, Don Jazzy & Tiwa Savage, Fally Ipupa, Uhuru, Mafikizolo, Oskido ,Trey Songz and Davido to name a few. Mafikizolo, Uhuru, Clarence Peters and Davido were the main winners of the night scooping two awards each, with Ghana’s Sarkodie scooping Best Hip-Hop act and Kenyan beauty Lupita Nyong’o winning Personality of the year.

Video clips of the performances are yet to surface and I am not sure if the awards will be broadcasted over here in the UK. But if it will, I will be sure to let you know!

Just added: I found out that BET International will be airing the awards from June 12th onwards! Woop
