We can’t wait to unleash all the exciting red carpet and on-stage photos from the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards! In the interim, we will love to know what you thought about the show and the winners.
The most coveted award - Most Gifted Video Of The Year went to South African star Zakes Bantwini for his video “Wasting My Time“.
As we expected, our Nigerian stars Darey, Naeto C, Ice Prince (feat. BrymO), D’banj and Banky W won various major awards at the event.
The big question of the night was “Where is D’banj?“, the star had been hyped as the night’s major attraction as he was the recipient of the 2011 Channel O Music Awards Special Recognition Award.
D’banj reportedly missed the show due to a dispute/oversight/miscommunication over his flight ticket class (BN has reached out to both parties for a statement).
The show which was hosted by Banky W and Dineo went well with strong performances by Uganda’s Keko and Navio, Zambia’s C.R.I.$.I.$, Nigeria’s Ice Prince and Flavour, Kenya’s STL and Angola’s Cabo Snoop. That said, D’banj’s absence definitely created a void.
