Just In: MTV Postpones MAMA Awards In Kampala Just Days To The Event 

Just In: MTV Postpones MAMA Awards In Kampala Just Days To The Event 

MTV Base has postponed the 2021 MTV Africa Music (MAMA) Awards over circumstances they have not explained.

In a statement on Thursday evening organizers MTV  posted on  Twitter but they did not give a reason for the development.

“MTV Base is postponing the 2021 MTV Africa Music Awards”

“We will keep fans updated as we have more news’

Last month, Mr. Robert Amsterdam of Amsterdam & Partners LLP who has represented Bobi Wine since August 2018 launched a campaign—asking African Artists to boycott the MTV Base, the African version of the renowned MTV music channel that are set to be held in Kampala on February 20, 2021.

Lawyer Amsterdam said he had asked all his friends in South Sudan, Nigeria, Cameroon, Tanzania Zambia, Ghana, South Africa and Kenya to speak to MTV about the necessity of a boycott of any show in Uganda that lends legitimacy to President Museveni at this time.

Citing gross human rights violation and alleged rigging in the just concluded elections, Amsterdam said: “I am asking all my friends in South Sudan Nigeria Cameroon Tanzania Zambia Ghana South Africa and Kenya to speak to MTV about the necessity of a boycott of any show in Uganda that lends legitimacy to M7 at this time! #EndSARS #byebyebiya #Kenya #mtv #FreeBobiWineOurPresident”.

Ugandan government, through the Uganda Tourism Board and the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities entered a partnership with MTV to have the awards held in Uganda to promote tourism— four years after the prestigious show went on a sabbatical.

The event is scheduled to take place on February 20, 2021 in Kampala, for the first time ever
