Grammy Award winning R&B icon, NE-YO, will perform at the MTV Africa Music Awards in KwaZulu-Natal next month. The event will take place at the Durban International Convention Centre on Saturday 18 July 2015.
The singer-songwriter will perform songs from his sixth studio album, Non Fiction. Since smashing onto the top spot of the Billboard Hot 200 Chart back in 2006 with his second single, So Sick, NE-YO has spent the last nine years churning out hit after hit, not only as a performer, but as a songwriter for Beyoncé, Rihanna and the late Michael Jackson.
Multiple platinum singles, four hit albums and three Grammy Awards later, the hit-maker is ready to share his latest work with the world. NE-YO has expressed his excitement about his first ever performance in SA, saying “I can’t wait for you to see what I have in store Durban! I hope you’re ready, because I am!”
Celebrating the evolution of African musicians by recognising contemporary artists and trailblazers across a range of music and lifestyle categories, the MTV Africa Music Awards KwaZulu-Natal 2015 will broadcast live across Africa on MTV Base (DStv channel 322), MTV (DStv channel 130) and BET (DStv channel 129) on Saturday 18 July at 21:00 CAT. The show will also be transmitted worldwide on partner stations and content platforms including BET International from 18 July. In addition, a special MAMA-themed edition of MTV’s acclaimed World Stage franchise will air globally on MTV channels around the world on 27 August 2015.
