All eyes will be on Durban, South Africa this weekend for the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards.

Make sure to tune in to MTV Base, channel 322, on Saturday, 18 July at 21:00 CAT and see all the performances, red carpet fashion and the MAMA winners.

We’re so excited to see some of our favourite artists hit the MAMA stage. Ne-Yo, Jhene Aiko, Davido, Wizkid, Black Motion, 2Face and AKA will all be performing their hit songs.

Our cameras were at the MAMAs press conference. Check out the video below and see what some of the MAMA nominees and performers - the likes of P-Squared and Vanessa Mdee, had to say about their expectations for this weekend’s award ceremony.
