Easily tonight’s most talked about thing in South Africa (besides the beef between Nicki Minaj and veteran rapper, Remy Ma), the Metro FM music awards have been nothing short of entertaining and not in the way the organizer’s intended.
Just take a look at some of the night’s weirdest highlights for proof.
Miss Pru going up on stage alone to accept the best collaboration award
Now we all know that there was a recent mass exodus of talent at Ambitiouz Records but the fact that the song that they created that features all the label’s past artists won the award for best collaboration made it so obvious.
Miss pru didn't produce,sing,rap,no ad lips nyana,she did fokol and she got nerves to not mention guys who actually contributed #MMA16— Khutšo® (@CallMeCoudjoe) February 25, 2017
And then later going on to perform Ameni minus half the people on the song
That Ameni Performance was so awkward 😱 #MMA16— Bad Wolf 🐺 (@TahsawZG) February 25, 2017
This audience is so dead like that Ameni performance #MMA16— sam chili (@samchili2) February 25, 2017

Gadaffi’s suit and his entire time on stage nje
The awards show’s technical team even messed up the running order and showed the nominee video before introducing the person who was going to be announcing the award.
But now that we’ve seen Gadaffi’s suit, we understand why they got confused.

His pants dont match his jacket.

Riky’s acceptance speech
Also, Riky's got some beeeeg cojones for saying that at an awards show hosted by a radio station! https://t.co/Ip7ifpsJyQ— ZAlebs (@Zalebs) February 25, 2017
"If niggaz can pay for these fucking awards then my nigga I dont want them..." - RIKY RICK 2016— #STAYSHINING 🌍 (@rikyrickworld) February 25, 2017
With that said, people are trying to come at him for getting as far as he did and only criticizing the system now but what people forget is that sometimes, you have to play the game. Even if you do play the game, you don’t have to like it.
Something's got to give here though... Riky is upset. Is he implying that his stable bought that award? Wonder how they'll take it #MMA16— Gabi Mbele (@TheGabi) February 25, 2017
So in short Riky Rick is saying he got the award because Mabala Noise's money gave to him... 🤔 #MMA16— Mbuyiseni Ndlozi (@MbuyiseniNdlozi) February 25, 2017
Reggie coming up on stage during Nasty C’s win: the bag, the speech, everything…
What's funny is they cut Ricky 's speech but not Reggie's long SONA. That makes everything look staged. #MMA16— Lizwe (@Lizwesc) February 25, 2017
Mabala noise Reggie speech was long & someway shady ,,Ricky Rick speech was cut short while he was pointing some important aspects😦😰 #MMA16— Marcia thejane (@tseepati) February 25, 2017
He then went on to imply that South Africa has never produced a superstar and that had EVERYONE up in arms
Does Reggie know that Caiphus composed some of the music in Roots, Colour Purple and Lion King? #MMA16 🤔🤔🙈— PhathuMakwarela (@PhathuMakwarela) February 25, 2017
Like Caiphus was the arranger in Michael Jackson's Bad! Raggie must balance me 🤔🤔 #MMA16— PhathuMakwarela (@PhathuMakwarela) February 25, 2017
As if it wasn't Miriam Makeba who took African music to the world! Bo Reggie neh #MMA16— PhathuMakwarela (@PhathuMakwarela) February 25, 2017
Like Lebo M will never be poor for as long as Lion King is still playing on stages around the world 😂😂— PhathuMakwarela (@PhathuMakwarela) February 25, 2017
@thulasindi Mam' Letta Mbulu is featured on Michael Jackson's Liberian Girl. Kahle Bo! Sudlala ngathi, sibadala nxa!— Ntombikayise Phiri (@Ntombi_Phiri) February 25, 2017
Babes Wodumo not winning ANYTHING
And then she had to close the show.
How painful must it be to be mized all awards and still come out and close the show?? Sorry Babes 😢 #MMA16— 🅿️IZZLE (@MO_Pitso) February 25, 2017
I wouldn't perform if I was Babes Wodumo... who deserved atleast one award and after Riky confirmed the sham wooooshem #MMA16— Gabi Mbele (@TheGabi) February 25, 2017
Babes Wodumo didn't win, okay but we still know that she's da best & she deserved at least 2 awards and definitely song of da year..#MMA16— #Ubumnandi#AllToYou (@limit_less_love) February 25, 2017
