Tell your MAMA that R&B superstar NE-YO is on his way back to Mzansi. The Grammy winner will be out here for the MTV Africa Music Awards, going down in KZN on the 18th of July.
On performing in Durban for the first time, the R&B crooner said, “I can’t wait for you to see what I have in store Durban! I hope you’re ready, because I am!”
Commented Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, “We are very excited to welcome NE-YO to MAMA 2015 for his first ever appearance in Durban. As a sensational live perfomer and truly accomplished R&B star, NE-YO’s an all-round class act who will greatly complement the African performers on the show.”
I’ve had the privilege of meeting NE-YO. As a fan and as reporter, I can tell you he is one of the nicest, most humble people in the industry. He’s a talent to behold and trust me, if you’re going to be at the MAMAs, you will not be disappointed.
Tickets for the MAMAs are on sale at Computicket now. Visit the site for more details and to join the conversation about the awards please use the hashtag #MTVMAMA2015.
