2014 MTV European Music Awards


Sunday, November 9, 10pm

It’s time for the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs), one of the biggest global music events of the year. The highlight, of course, is the announcement of the Best African Act.

Previous winners have included 2Face (2005), Freshlyground (2006), and D’Banj (2007 and 2012). This year Kenyan Afro-pop group Sauti Sol was announced the winner.

The event will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, with the fiesty Nicki Minaj as host.

MTV’s stunning Nomuzi Mabena (pictured) will be in London and Glasgow, covering the event for our screens, and Bonang Matheba and MTV Base’s Sizwe Dhlomo will be reporting for Metro FM and Highveld. – Grethe Koen
