MTV Base MAMA Awards 2016 Full Winners List

The MTV Africa Music Awards 2016 winners list is finally here !!!

The MTV Africa Music Awards Johannesburg 2016 was delivered to us in great style by Joburg Tourism in partnership with Absolut Vodka, Google and in association with MTN and DSTV.

In September 2016, fifty MAMA nominees including artists and achievers from 18 countries were revealed in 9 key music and lifestyle award categories by Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa and MTV Base (DStv channel 322) at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg, South Africa.

A day to the MAMAs it was announced comedian, Trevor Noah had to drop his hosting duties due to respiratory and ear infection (a real shame as we were looking forward to his jokes).

Queen B of Africa, Bonang Matheba stepped up to the plate in less than 24 hours with co-hosting duties by our very own Mama Africa, Yemi Alade.

Between the ladies, from the red carpet, they must have had at least 8 – 10 costume changes showing off different outfits by African designers.

Starboy Wizkid, walked away with 3 coveted awards – Best Male, Best Collaboration for his featured track with South Africa’s DJ Maphorisa & DJ Buckz and Artist of the Year.
