In an announcement on Friday, the show’s organisers also confirmed performances by Nigeria’s Wizkid, Angola’s C4 Pedro, Kenyan supergroup Sauti Sol and local DJ/ producer DJ Maphorisa.
Local fans will no doubt be excited to see Wizkid perform, following his recent hit collaboration with Drake on One Dance.
The artist also leads this year’s nominations with six nods. So, it could turn out to be a great night if you’re a Wizkid fan.
The glitzy ceremony is set to be broadcast live across the world on MTV Base (Dstv Channel) and MTV Base (DStv Channel 322).
Tickets for the ceremony are available from R250.
