The long awaited MTV music Awards (MAMAs) that was scheduled to take place on the February 20, 2020 in Kampala, Uganda has been postponed. A twitter statement issued by the MTV music Awards public relation Officer.
The reason for postponement has not been highlighted by MTV but could well be due to the continued calls by Human Rights activists to suspend the awards following the instability in the Uganda resulting from the just concluded elections.
Due to the Covid-19, the continental awards was to be held virtually in Kampala city as the main event host.
The MTV Africa Music Awards were established in 2008 by MTV Networks Africa (now Viacom International Media Networks Africa) to celebrate the most popular contemporary music in Africa.
