So the 2012 Channel O Music Video Awards were held down in Soweto, Kliptown last night. This years hosts were none other than the awesome Bonang “Queen B*” Matheba and Nigerian superstar Ice Prince.

The set up of the whole production was well constructed, even while I was home watching them on the television(Channel 320) I could see that they went all out to make it a killer show and I applaud the team that pulled it.

Vuzu(Channel 116) gave us the viewers a brilliant insight of the Red Carpet as the artists walked through and were interviewed by the two gorgeous women, The V-Girls, Lalla Hirayama and Dineo Moeketsi who also looked ravishing in their sexy dresses.

All the performances of the night were great as you could also see in the faces of fans that they are enjoying themselves to the max, performances performed include:

  • Pro
  • Khuli Chana
  • Ice Prince
  • D’Banj
  • Dr. Malinga & Black Motion
  • Zeus
  • M.anifest
  • Dj. Zinhle feat. Busiswa
  • and many more…

    …Though the performance that I personally enjoyed the most and was also the closing was by MiCasa & Soweto Gospel Choir as the performed “Heavenly Sent” and “La Vida”, WOW!!!!!
