Davido - Davido & Mafikizolo Score Double Victories At Mtv Africa Music Awards

Nigerian musician Davido and South Africa's Mafikizolo were double winners at the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards on Saturday (07Jun14).

Davido was named Best Male and Best Artist, while fellow Nigerians Tiwa Savage and Flavour were also big winners as the Mamas returned to Durban, South Africa after a three-year hiatus.

The host country was also well represented at the event with Mafikizolo claiming Best Group and Song of the Year for Khona, while Gangs of Ballet took Best Alternative and Goldfish were named Best Pop Act.

Meanwhile, superproducer Pharrell Williams was feted with the Best International title and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o added another accolade to her growing list of honours by accepting the Personality of the Year prize via a pre-recorded video clip.

The MTV Africa Music Awards was hosted by comedian Marlon Wayans and featured sets from Trey Songz, French Montana and Miguel.
