The MTV Africa Music Awards has been postponed indefinitely by MTV Base, the organizers of the event.
MTV originally scheduled to hold the event in Kampala, the Ugandan capital in February 2021.
MTV told The Punch that the postponement was due to the current health and safety challenges posed by the COVID-19 virus.
MTV Base wrote “After careful consideration, MTV Base is concerned that the current health and safety challenges will significantly jeopardize the ability of the campaign to continue to achieve its objectives.
“MTV Base will keep fans posted. The 2021 MAMA Kampala is a virtual event. Strict adherence to health and safety protocols as specified by WHO have been adhered to throughout the production process.”
