Organisers of the annual Channel O Africa Music Awards are busy with final touches ahead of the continent’s most exciting night.

Winners in the 14 categories will be announced on Saturday, 30 November at Walter Sisulu Square, in Kliptown Soweto.

The 10th Annual Channel O Africa Music Awards will be broadcast live on Channel O at 20:00.

Among those taking to the stage on Saturday night will be Cassper Nyovest featuring Okmalumkooklat, Burna Boy, The Soil, Khuli Chana, Victoria Kimani, Buffalo Souljah, Wizkid, Aka featuring Da L.E.S., KCee, Lizha James, and Mafikizolo.

In the host hot seat is the one-two star-studded combination of Nigerian muso Naeto C and South African hip hopper AKA – both artists already having proved their popularity with Channel O viewers over the past few years.

The only category not voted by Channel O viewers is the Special Recognition, which this year is being awarded to Nigerian R&B duo P-Square.

Twin brothers Peter and Paul Okoye, are being honoured for their significant artistic contributions to music, which have helped place African music and its artists firmly on international stages. They follow in the footsteps of the likes of Oscar “Oskido” Mdlongwa (2012); Nigeria’s Koko Master D’Banj (2011); Somalian born K’NAAN (2010); South African Brenda Fassie (2009) and Ghana’s George Lee (2008).
