Last night the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) returned to our screens. The show included performances from Africa’s finest like Davido, Dbanj, Tiwa Savage, Sarkodie and Mafikizolo, as well as a few internationals too like Miguel and Trey Songz. The show was hosted by American comedian Marlon Wayans battled his way through some of the names and had many people questioning his hosting duties. He had some high notes, but for the most part people were asking why no African comedians were included in the bill. Alas, it is what it is and the show was actually really impressive and enjoyable. Did you spot the ‘Kool Kardashian’ aka Khloe Kardashian? She was in Durban to show her man, French Montana support.
