The Durban International Convention Centre will host the MAMA's this year and will be shown on MTV Base (DStv 322), MTV (DStv 130) and other partner channels in June. VIMN Africa and MTV started the MTV Africa Music Awards in 2008.
The MTV Africa Music Awards celebrate musicians and achievers impacting Africa's youth culture.
"We are thrilled that the MTV Africa Music Awards 2014 will be taking place in South Africa for the first time," says Alex Okosi, the senior vice president and managing director for VIMN Africa.
The MTV Africa Music Awards 2014 are open to all artists whose music videos have been accepted for airplay on MTV Base or MTV during the qualifying period of 20 March 2013 to 19 March 2014.
