Ycee, Patoranking, Runtown, Koker, Simi, others for Road To Mama 2016


With just six weeks to go until the MTV Africa Music Awards Johannesburg 2016 (MAMA), a dazzling line-up of artists is set to headline Lagos’s annual Road to MAMA party, taking place on Sunday, October 2, at the Hard Rock Cafe, Lagos.

Headlining the gig is reggae-dancehall star Patoranking, who wowed Durban music fans at last year’s spectacular ceremony and took home the award for MAMA Best New Act at the 2015 MAMA. He’ll be joined by Hip Hop freshman Nasty C, who is set to heat up the MAMA main stage in Johannesburg – and fast-rising Hip Hop star Ycee, who’s also been confirmed to perform at the show.

Prolific rapper Skales will showcase more Nigerian hip-hop artistry, while Runtown will be showing off his R&B/reggae moves. Rising Afro-Pop/Highlife newcomer Koker and award-winning Love don’t Care songbird Simi complete the line-up. There will be added excitement at this year’s gig, as MTV Base will be revealing nominees in 7 different MAMA categories, including Best Female, Video of the Year and Artist of the Year.

Rounding out the evening with some hot deck action will be DJs Xclusive, Humility, Kaywise, Hazan and Ttb.

A limited number of tickets for Road to MAMA – Lagos will be available at the Hard Rock Café, Lagos from September 2. Highlights of show will air on MTV Base (DStv channel 322) in October 2016.
