Flavour N’abania, Ice Prince, Naeto C, Samini, Lira, Banky W & More! All the Fiery HOT Photos from the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards

Channel O Music Video Awards 2011 hosts - Banky W & Dineo

On Monday 14th November 2011, BN published the list of winners for the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa.

As promised, here are the photos from the event! Experience all the action from the red carpet to the stage.
Nigerian stars Flavour N’abania, Ice Prince, Banky W, Tiwa Savage plus all our brothers and sisters from across the continent! Cabo Snoop, Zakes Bantwini, KB, STL, Weza, Samini and so many more.

The performance set at the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards was HOT! From Angola’s Cabo Snoop to Ghana’s Samini and let’s not forget Flavour N’abania, Tiwa Savage and all the artistes who participated in the “rap battle”.

The big question from our last post was “Where was D’banj?“, in case you missed it, the Nigerian megastar was honoured at the event with a Special Recognition Award. In addition, he was nominated for several other awards and won the Most Gifted Male Video award for his “Mr Endowed (Remix)” video.

According to the “gist”, D’banj arrived at the airport to head for South Africa for the awards and was surprised when he found out an economy class ticket had been booked for him so he refused to fly.
Well, Channel O has spoken and their account of events is different.

Below is the official word from Channel O.

Channel O can confirm that Nigerian artist and Special Recognition winner D’Banj was booked to fly to this year’s awards in Business Class as are all winners in this category. Unfortunately, as a result of him missing two scheduled flights, it was no longer possible to accommodate him in Business Class and he was therefore unable to attend the event.

Whatever the case, we missed D’banj at the event! Hope he can make it next year.

Check out photos below.

    • Jay November 18, 2011 at 5:27 pm

      Nay!!! Banky needs a wardrobe stylist. He needs assistance in that department because he obviously can’t do it on his own.
      Eku looks well put together. I love her effortlessly chic style. It’s so refreshing to see that as opposed to the typical overdone naija style.
      Flavor is looking so fine o! I need to fully understand the theory of the way money/wealth does wonders to mostly men.

  • St. Ed! November 17, 2011 at 4:19 am

    Nice…….congrats to the winners…..!!! Naija representing!!!

  • nephetiti November 17, 2011 at 4:27 am

    Eku looks georgeous!!!! love the hair, the dress and the make up is great for her skintone, unlike some other looks i’ve seen that , personally, i think were too bright for the outfit. this dress speaks enough, no need to clash with super bright lips. love it!

  • Ronnie November 17, 2011 at 4:37 am

    I criticize naija entertainers a lot about their dressing but its obvious that they are more fashion forward than their contemporaries in other african countries so kudos to them!

    • omowunmi November 18, 2011 at 2:46 pm

      that’s very true.a lot more reasons why we are called giant of AFRICA.

  • rosellar November 17, 2011 at 5:40 am

    @Ronnie, I second your opinion. Look @ Weza- her hair, her dress, her posture: she looks like a HOT MESS!!!!! †ђξ presenter in tan wedges and d black sequin dress must be from mars. Tiwa looks hot but her train is sooooo uncalled for! Too many fashion disasters! Where’s Toolz? I hope she ‘repped’ d plus sized women well?

  • chidi November 17, 2011 at 7:05 am

  • Gidi November 17, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Beyonce wannabe

  • Gidi November 17, 2011 at 10:40 am

    If Nigerians had the resources and support system of South African’s our Art, fashion and entertainment industry will be on fire!!
    South Africans must have the worst dress sense i have seen in a long time. They just can’t dress up to save their lives.
    Ice Prince will feel at home there.
    What skin infection does Banky W have on his head?
    I have seen Dineo look way better.
    Thia must be Lira’s worst outfit. She is often on point. i wonder what happened here?
    She is still my girl any time.
    Congrats to KB on his engagement!
    I see that unattractive beauty quuens are not restricted to Nigeria in recent times. How can a country that produced Bassie Khumalo,have this lady as her present beauty quuen?
    Zakes is always the best dressed man in any room he is in. congrats bhuti on the award.
