MTV Africa Music Awards Winners

The MAMAs was held yesterday and thanks to the Beeb, I know the winners. Yes people, as you might have already guessed, we (Nigerians) kicked ass. We won six out of the 10 categories. Anyhoo, here are the winners:

Best Video: Wind Am Well – Ikechukwu [ft. Don Jazzy & D’banj]
Best Group: P-Square (They had 5 nominations, but only got 1)
Artist of the Year: D’banj
Best Male: D’banj (2 out of 3 ain’t bad)
Best New Act: Naeto C
Best Hip Hop: 9ice (beating The Game, Lil Wayne, HHP & Professor Jay (Tanzania). Imagine if Kanye was nominated & present… we missed a good tantrum)
Best Female: Wahu (Kenya)
Best Live Performer: Jozi (South Africa)
Best R&B: Alicia Keys
Best Alternative: Seether (South Africa)
Legend: Fela Kuti
Listener’s Choice: Why Me – D’banj (make that 3 out of 4)

Apparently, the performers were off the hook & there were some sick collaborations, lets see, D’banj & Kelly Rowland; Asa & HHP (RSA); Jozi (RSA) & P-Square; Cassette (RSA), Jua Cali (Kenya), Ikechukwu & Naeto C. There were also performances from 9ice, Flo-Rida, The Game & Seun Kuti. Jay Jay Okocha kicked a ball. A tribute was made to the late great Mama Africa, Miriam Makebe. Now, we have to wait till the 29th, to see any coverage. Yours truly, will be hunting for it on the web, and will definately find it.

Imagine how happy I was when I thought today was the 27th, thanks to my watch leaping 4 days ahead. Damn you watch. Update: Damn you slow typing skills. In the 50mins, it took to type this [& update my wikipedia article on D’banj], all the other blogs posted theirs, Darnit!
