Wizkid was named artist of the year and best male musician and also won the prize for top collaboration at the awards, which celebrate pan-African music, youth culture and talent, with the winners chosen by public vote.
Another top prize winner was South Africa’s Olympic gold medallist Caster Semenya, who won gold in the women’s 800-metres at the Rio Olympic in August. She received loud applause when she was crowned personality of the year.
“I would like to thank God for this precious talent. It’s been a fantastic year for me,” the runner, who has been dogged by questions around her gender, said.
The Saturday night ceremony was originally set to be hosted by South African comedian and US television star Trevor Noah, but he called in sick so South African TV personality Bonang Matheba stepped in.
South Africa’s jazz icon and Grammy award winner Hugh Masekela won the legend of the year award, and briefly rapped as he accepted his prize.
For a second consecutive year, Nigerian artist Yemi Alade walked away with the best female award trophy while Kenyan Afro-pop band Sauti Sol took the best group award.
Alex Okosi, senior vice president of Viacom International Media Networks Africa, which runs the MTV Awards said Saturday’s awards “brought the continent together, showcasing the amazing creativity and talent that Africa has to offer.”
A recent study has found growing demand for homegrown contemporary music across Africa, which is driving a creative boom in an industry otherwise battered by falling CD sales and rampant piracy.
The MTV Africa music awards were first staged in 2008 and have each year recognised iconic musicians from across the continent.
