We're coming to you from Nairobi, Kenya! Home to the second ever MTV Africa Music Awards, we get the full lowdown backstage and on the red carpet.

Plus we hear from Artist of the Year - Nigeria's D'Banj, South Africa's HHP on why this was the best awards ceremony ever, Sway on his first trip to Kenya, Gal Level on being the first Namibians to be nominated, and we bring you all the heat and flavour from around Nairobi.
