Congolese artist Fally Ipupa, and Nigeria’s 2Face led the winners at the third edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards with Airtel (MAMA), each taking home two trophies at the music awards ceremony at the Eko Expo Hall, Lagos on 11 December 2010.

Nominated in four separate categories, Fally Ipupa scored wins for Best Video (“Sexy Dance”) and Best Francophone act while 2Face, a former MAMA winner from 2009, picked up trophies for Artist of the Year and Best Male.

Cabo Snoop notched up a music first for Angola by becoming the first ever Angolan winner at MAMA 2010, taking home the prize for Best Lusophone act. The inaugural Best Anglophone award went to Kenyan Gospel breakthrough artist Daddy Owen – the first time a gospel artist has won a MAMA.

Song of the Year was won by South African pop/R&B outfit Liquideep for their hauntingly lovely ‘Fairytale’. New MAMA award category Best Performance was won by Big Nuz, the South African house trio making waves all over the continent.

Nigerian vocalist Sasha scored Nigeria’s first ever win in the Best Female category after Kenyan dominance over the last two years. Nigerian R&B duo P-Square (Nigeria) added yet another MAMA trophy to their awards cabinet – taking home Best Group for the third year running! Rising Nigerian star Mo Cheddah notched up her first win in the hotly contested Brand:New category which recognises rising stars tipped by MTV for success.

The prestigious Best International act was received by Eminem who accepted the award via satellite from the USA. The MAMA Legend award, won by the late, great Miriam Makeba, was presented by Public Enemy founder and hip hop pioneer Chuck D.

The 2010 MAMA awards opened with an explosive performance by Hip Hop heavyweight, Rick Ross, and closed with an unforgettable rendition of “Win” featuring T-Pain, Rick Ross, Da LES and 2Face – a world first. In keeping with the tradition of the awards, the show featured an array of electrifying collaborations between artists from different parts of the continent, mixing up music genres, language and cultures in a unprecedented extravaganza of African talent. Among the collaborations were Nigeria’s 2Face who hooked up with South African rock outfit The Parlotones. The performance of Banky W’s “Lagos Party” saw South Africa’s Big Nuz, Angola’s Cabo Snoop and Paul G and DRC’s Barbara Kanam rocking the house with the first ever truly pan-African version of the hit track.

Commented Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, MTV Networks Africa, “Tonight’s MTV Africa Music Awards with Airtel was a joyful and uplifting celebration of African youth culture and music. It brought together the best talent from across Africa to showcase the incredible music that Africa has to offer to the world. It is amazing to see the collaborations between the artists as it fosters a spirit of camaraderie and creative exchange that takes their music to a new level.”

Commented Andre Beyers, Chief Marketing Officer, Airtel Africa, “The diversity and talent of the performances this evening was a reflection of the vast and rich talent pool that Africa has to offer. We at Airtel are proud to partner with the MTV Africa Music Awards as it is a platform for the youth and young at heart in Africa, enabling them to showcase their talent to a global audience. Music is an important way to connect with Africa as we relaunch the Airtel brand on the continent. It will support Airtel’s mission of giving the youth a means to express themselves and the freedom to do more.”

      I think Airtel should have waited till after the awards to use 2face as their brand ambassador. It comes across as if 2face won all his categories because Airtel was the sponsor. I’m sure that is not the case but it sure does look like it.

    sasha won what???????????? anyway sha, the babe should hit the gym and lose the pot belly, just see her next to eve, when u are in the entertainment industry u are in the spotlight hence the need to keep in shape or just wear clothes that fit your body type! ah ah! this is getting too much!

    • who's that girl?

      December 12, 2010 at 6:15 am

      That is not true, one does not have to be skinny to succeed in their industry i.e Monique, Missy, Quuen Latifah…….. you seem to forget about their talents, that is what really matters and make them shine!

    • itk

      December 12, 2010 at 6:53 am

      imagine her without her full figure… abeg free the babe joh

    • Sia

      December 12, 2010 at 9:55 am

      Guys, she did not say the rapper should be skinny. READDDDD! When you lose weight, you are not skinny. Now that Monique has lost weight, would you call her skinny?

      We need to get rid of the stereotype that black don’t read.

    • RANDOM

      December 12, 2010 at 6:56 am

      okay chillax we don’t all need to be size zeros, if she’s comfortable the way she is leave her, it’s not in her job description to be the size you want her to be , thank you very much mr/ms/mrs/icon

    • onika

      December 12, 2010 at 5:19 pm

      Icon is right though,she needs to dress for her body type and that dress ain’t cutting it. Nigerian celebs need to work on their image.

    Hello pips, im happy that you guyz are now getting the fact that Nigeria Music industry is full of Fake hypes and low class artist in terms of contents and quality,I think its time we recognize the fact that the likes Mo hits and copy cats crooners Peter and Paul are Bunch of Fake – artist ,but I think they are great performers ,somebody should tell what the hell is mo chether or what ever are name is to quit the game cos I know she is a product of proper management or money bags because she does not deserve the hype she has been getting,what has she done to deserve an award ? and somebody tell me that WACKY W is not FAKE? please I am tired of the Bull sh*t MTV Base as lost it.I think the CARTEL that is dictating to these people should allow the industry to grow please.

      I get that you are pissed and all, but seriously, next time, take a deep breath, read through your comment and correct all typos/grammatical errors before posting.
      Thanks.

      December 12, 2010 at 2:26 pm

      I don’t get what your talking about.
      Nigerians like critisizing their own too much.Other Africans talk about how good our music industry is and some people can only see negatives.I’m proud of our musicians .

    • anonymous

      December 12, 2010 at 10:28 pm

      They’re just hating my dear! They can’t stand to see others do well, so they look for something to criticise and if there is nothing, they will input one.

    December 12, 2010 at 8:38 am

    O GA O… SASHA SHOULD LOSE WEIGHT??? No be Africa we dey? Na skinny women dey reign nowadays??? And comparing her to Eve? I swear the first thing I thought when I saw her was how SHE had lost weight. And aside that, what happened to different people having different shapes and sizes. As logn as she isn’t obese and clogging her arteries with lethal fat, I don’t think anyone has the right to comment on someone else’s weight. Neither the privilege of anonymity nor the person’s career- entertainer or not- should allow for such insult. Haba… We are all human beings now. At least, the babe get mirror. If she doesn’t want to change how she looks, wetin be your own?

    Mini-rant over. I would be the last person to take a jibe at Sasha’s weight but WTF did she win best female for? Best Female? In Africa? SASHA? Surely that is a slap to the face of female musicians around the continent. This is nothign personal but this should be about merit. I find it hard to believe that Sasha deserves the accolade of the top female performer on the African continent.

    Looking forward to the red carpet pics… 🙂

    What in the world is sasha doing there? Like really??? What has she put out that has been successful in recent YEARS? i think loads of these things are ass kissing moves….like seriously! Storm just always has to “plug-in” their folks….

    One sure thing is; paying attention to awards and accolades will get u nowhere….Good Music all day!

    2Baba … You are the Ish … am glad Your good music is ruling everywhere … Psquare yeah ..am glad you guys won too cos you deserve it… though am not satisfied with some Naija winners oo.in my opinion … Nneka should have won it instead of Sasha … cos erm erm her music doesnt appeal to me .. Pls thats my opinion .. Banky could have won as well cos he had a very good year .. he gave us good music and nice videos .. still wonder why DARE ART ALADE wasnt nominated atleast for that song NOT THE GIRL .. maybe am not seeing what the organizers are seeing sha .. but for me if that song was sang by Lionel Richie it would surely get a grammy recognition … God bless naija artistes that sings good music … 2baba God bless you more… anyways Naija for life …

    Tuface has remained consistent and unargueably Africa’s best by leaps and bounds.Mo’chedda truly deserved the award;u need to listen to her album to appreciate her better!But for me the biggest winner was FALLY IPUPA….i actually followed his progress from being a back-up dancer/vocalist for Koffi Olomide way back to finally pursuing a solo career….now an MTV award!..waoh!hw dreams come true!…..Fally,uur my biggest winner!

    Good on you 2Face. My lil girls adore Mo Cheddar. My 5 year old keeps asking if she is Chinese which has me in stitches when we watch the Ko Ma Roll video.

      December 13, 2010 at 1:09 am

      @ KC must u talk? Even if d dress is $1 or half a dollar, it looks good n that’s what she has chosen to wear. She doesn’t hv to spend a fortune on a dress or hair or shoes like d latest crase in naija just to keep up with the fashion trend today n end up broke. Its her choice respect it or go chop stone.

    Guys, she did not say the rapper should be skinny. READDDDD! When you lose weight, you are not skinny. Now that Monique has lost weight, would you call her skinny?We need to get rid of the stereotype that black don’t read.

    2Baba … You are the Ish … am glad Your good music is ruling everywhere … Psquare yeah ..am glad you guys won too cos you deserve it… though am not satisfied with some Naija winners oo.in my opinion … Nneka should have won it instead of Sasha … cos erm erm her music doesnt appeal to me .. Pls thats my opinion .. Banky could have won as well cos he had a very good year .. he gave us good music and nice videos .. still wonder why DARE ART ALADE wasnt nominated atleast for that song NOT THE GIRL .. maybe am not seeing what the organizers are seeing sha .. but for me if that song was sang by Lionel Richie it would surely get a grammy recognition … God bless naija artistes that sings good music … 2baba God bless you more… anyways Naija for life …

    Because people outside of nigeria don’t Know Darey YET!
    I must say (not being nigerian) I’ve been wondering why D’banj is such a big deal when people like Darey are so underrated?
    I’m just saying, I’d rather listen to Wande Coal than the D’banj himself…He’s entertaining I must say but not what I would put to someone who wants to listen to music or see some real talent… And that copying american acts thing also has a lot to do with why some nigerian artists have a hard time breaking outside of the nigerian community, why listen to the copy when you can get the real deal? If those guys would pay attention, the songs that brought all of them the most success are the ones where they were not trying to be someone else or sound like something else.

    2face deserves it. He’s so sexy, without even trying.
    Sasha looks a mess standing next to Eve.
    Who is this Fally Ipupa dude? He’s kind of sexy.

    i’ll give it 2 2face anyday,anytime.he’s actually d only artist dt makes music i’ll never get tired of & play it over & over again(good music).its nt dt d others arent ok,but its ok 2 sing rubbish 2,3,4 tyms,but wen rubbish is all u sing everytym,den it bcums annoying & its lyk u are mocking d pips listening 2 d songs.its nt lyk international musicians sing better than nigerian musicians dey also sing trash n meaningless songs.i prefer nigerian songs but many arent doin it 4 me.if dey could just settle down & make good music dey would b given their due respect.2face still remains my best musician in d world.

  92. Just concerned

    December 16, 2010 at 10:02 am

    Everything you said about Dare Art Alade and his You’re Not The Girl is VERY CORRECT…in and out! Sometimes people just fall out when they fail to push buttons especially in this part of the world
