MTV Africa Music Awards
This year's MAMAs (MTV Africa Music Awards) ceremony will be held in Nairobi, Kenya.
This comes after an impressive perfomance by Kenya's artiste Wahu Kagwe who emerged the best female artist in the inagural wards event last year in Abuja Nigeria.
The prestigious ceremony will be held on Saturday 10 October at Nairobi's Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani indoor auditorium.
The awards celebrate the passion, impact and creativity of Africa's best contemporary music artists!
The event will be beemed live on DSTV and Mtv to millions of viewers with an expected 5,00 fans watching live at the auditorium.
The event is poised to be the highest profile music event in the history of the East African region according to Mwambu Wanendeya, Zain Group Communications Director for Africa .
This is quite an honour to budding Kenyan artistes in the international music arena and is a challenge for them to up their game and produce quality and sensible music.
In last years event Kenya's king of "GENGE" music Jua Kali was honoured to perform at the galla awards.
