A trio of double wins turned the 2009 Channel O Music Video Awards into a show of strength for artists from Nigeria, Zimbabwe and Namibia. Darey Art Alade (Nigeria), Gal Level (Namibia) and Buffalo Souljah (Zimbabwe) each won two awards, proving their pulling power with Africa’s music fans and Channel O’s viewers who chose the winners in the 14 categories.

Darey was named Best Male at the star-studded event at Carnival City on Thursday 29 October, attended by the cream of Africa’s entertainment scene and hosted by another talented trio in Vuzu VJ Nonhle and Channel O’s own Lungile and KB.

Performers included nominees 2Face Idibia, Sound Sultan, HHP (Jabba), Nneka as well as Bongani Fassie (Jozi) & the Umoja Choir. Nigeria had five awards and South African musicians lost out again with only Khuli taking home the Best Newcomer award.

    Why do they keep nominating the same people with the same songs every year? I don’t get it.

    I suppose because the same people keep churning out material, support the artistes you like and maybe they’ll be nominated next year… Naija representers well done!
