With only two weeks that were left, the highly anticipated MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) event which was supposed to happen in Kampala has been postponed.
“MTV Base is postponing the 2021 MTV Africa Music Awards. We will keep fans updated as we have more news,” MTV Base Africa posted via social media on Thursday. The awards which were scheduled to take place on February 20 ,2021 had both the host DJ Khaled, the nominees of the different categories and the performers already unveiled.
The reason for postponing this event hasn’t been given given yet although assumptions drawn point at the unstable political terrain and election tension in the country with a section of netizens using social media to request organizers of this event until the situation stabilizes.
