The 2014 MTV MAMA Award Winners





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
