Khloé Kardashian and her new boyfriend, rapper French Montana, turned heads at the MTV Africa Music Awards in Durban at the weekend.

The youngest Kardashian sister (29) stole the show at a press conference on Friday in the run-up to the awards bash last night.

Chairs and glasses went flying as journalists and film crews scrambled to capture Kardashian’s entry at The Playhouse Company theatre, minutes after Montana (29) started speaking to journalists.

The tall brunette flaunted her curves in thigh-hugging jeans and a low-cut black top, accessorised with large hoop earrings.

French told journalists: “After spending 13 hours in the air, I’m still jet-lagged, you know.”

Asked for an update on his relationship with Kardashian, he smiled and said: “Next question!”

Meanwhile, looking unperturbed and chewing gum, Kardashian smiled her support from the audience. A legion of burly bodyguards stood around the reality TV star and asked people to stop taking pictures of her.

She recently described French as “My rockstar, my only star, my North Star” in an Instagram post.

US comedian and actor Marlon Wayans, hunky US rappers Trey Songz and Miguel, Dr Sid from ­Nigeria and Sarkodie from Ghana also arrived in Durban on Friday for the continent’s largest music awards ceremony. Wayans, the ceremony’s host, kicked off his South African visit with a joke.

“So this is where Beyoncé gets her moves from,” he said, captioning an Insta-video of traditional ­Zulu dancers.

At the press conference on Friday, women raised their phones to take pictures of Songz.

He spoke softly, saying he loved visiting SA. Dr Sid, a dentist-turned-singer, also evoked a frenzy. Commenting on his former job, he said: “I don’t miss being a dentist, but I respect the profession.”

Local stars Mafikizolo and kwaito DJ Oskido also addressed the media contingent.

Kardashian filed for divorce from basketball ­player Lamar Odom in December.

Media around the world are buzzing with news of her new-found love who, reportedly, has showered her with expensive jewellery.

It is not yet clear if her South African visit will be featured in the family’s hit reality TV show, Keeping up with the Kardashians. However, a cameraman did arrive at the theatre with her and did not leave her side throughout the press conference.
