The ceremony was scheduled to hold as the first-ever live-streamed virtual MTV Africa Awards in Kampala, Uganda in February 2021 due to complications arising from the coronavirus pandemic.
Nominees across the 20 categories were released last December where Nigerian talents like Burna Boy, Wizkid, Yemi Alade, and Davido scoop nominations.
In January, American hip-hop sensation and record producer DJ Khaled was announced as the international host while Tanzanian Diamond Platnumz, South Africa’s Nasty C, Kenya’s Khaligraph Jones, and Wizkid were among the lined-up acts to perform at the event.
