Pictures from MAMAS awardsThe 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards was held last night at Durban City South Africa lived up to its hype as ‘a night to remember’. Nigerian stars scored big at the event with Yemi Alade and Davido, taking home the Best Male and Best Female awards, respectively.

South Africa's hip hop star Cassper Nyovest nabbed the Best Hip Hop award. “Koko master”, D’Banj, won the MAMA Evolution award, a new category honoring established artists who have made an indelible mark on African and global music culture.

The night was also without its surprises and drama. From D’banj dedicating his Evolution Award to his estranged partner Don Jazzy, to Casper Nyovest's girlfriend throwing a tasteless 'diss' at her man's beef mate (Rapper AKA). It was quite the show.
