Events: 2015 MTV African Music Awards (MAMAs)

This weekend the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) went down in Durban, South Africa. All of the 'who's who' in the African music and entertainment industry were present at the event. Hosted by Anthony Hamilton, throughout the night there were many entertaining performances from top African and international artists such as AKA, Toofan, P-Square, Neyo and Jhene Aiko.

Also, everyone in attendance came full force with their fashion looks. My best dressed is definitely Nigerian musician Iyanya (and not because he wore an orange suit...ok, maybe it is because of that lol).
