MAMA Kampala 2021 postponed over Coronavirus

MTV Base has rescheduled the 2021 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) Kampala 2021 Music Awards event.

This, according to the organizers, is due to the concerns they have about the current health and safety challenges both on the continent and globally that significantly jeopardizes the ability of the campaign to continue to achieve its objectives.

“The MAMA Kampala 2021 is committed to reinforcing and inspiring the voices of the youth. The MAMA continues to celebrate and recognise African music, talent, and culture and youth empowerment across the continent ensuring that we inspire cross border collaboration towards driving a positive and informed positioning for Africa."

“Our purpose of developing and driving the music and entertainment industry across the continent to stimulate the economy through innovation and creativity while showcasing talent and taking African artists to the world remains a primary focus,” a statement issued by Monde Twala, SVP and GM, Viacom CBS Networks Africa, said on Friday, February 5.

The statement added, “We look forward to continuing this journey with you.”
