Er, we're kind of running out of words at this point in time. MTV Base have succeeded in leaving us utterly speechless following a string of exciting announcements ahead of next month's African Music Awards which will be taking place in Durban on the 7th of June. It was announced last week that Miguel and French Montana would be headlining the ceremony, while comedic genius Marlon Wayans would be hosting this year's ceremony. The guys and gals at Viacom are clearly not done, however, and this morning they dropped another major announcement after revealing that Trey Songz would be performing at this year's ceremony.
Can somebody say "wow!"? It's been a high profile year for South African music lovers as we've seen international artists announced at almost every other festival. However, MTV have set the bar for awards ceremonies incredibly high and we don't think we're going to see or experience a more explosive evening this year than the one MTV Base has in store for us on the 7th of June.
Trey Songz, like Miguel, will be performing in South Africa for the second time in his career after his sold out show in 2011. If you think about it fellas, you probably don't want to be taking your girlfriend to the MAMAs this year; Trey and Miguel will charm her socks off, while Marlon Wayans will keep her laughing. French Montana may be rumoured to be dating Khloe Kardashian, but he probably has a few hot guy friends who could just as easily scoop your missus up. You'd be safer watching the awards on TV at home!
