On the 18th of this month (July), there was the MTV Africa Music Awards 2015 which took place in Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa in its 15th time that it has happened. And as a matter of fact Nigeria has taken the maximum awards in this event.

Kenya and Uganda were among the nominees in this event in a big number but unfortunately they weren’t able to receive any award. However it was a great step they took to even be part of MAMA awards nominees.

On the other hand P-square who took the Best group and Artist of the decade has been a prove that Nigeria is good at music. And that’s why it had many nominees in this event and a lot of awards were taken by them.
