We recently wrapped up this year’s MVPs award festival, and if it’s possible to sum up all the exciting activities from this year’s events in one word, it would have to be “synchronization.”
Just like last year, the annual festival this year – held at Eko Conventional Centre, Lagos Nigeria – had a common theme of “Recognizing The Hardest Working Music Talent In Africa” Of course, the big difference this year was the infusion of the ‘Most Valuable Player’ award.
The biggest, realest and the most credible awards show in Africa right now, the #SoundcityMVP2016 held Lagos by storm honouring various African musical talents. Hosted by one of Africa’s funniest comedians, Basket Mouth and co-host Do2tun who thrilled the crowd, the event had spectacular performances from Olamide Badoo, Patoranking, Tekno, Niniola, Lil Kesh, Koker, Victoria Kimani among others and appearances by Wizkid, Banky W, Adesua Etomi, Marcy Dolapo Oni, Omowunmi Akinifesi, Noble Igwe, Mai Atafo, OC Ukeje, Lala Akindoju among many others.
And the feedback from faithful Soundcitizens this year was overwhelmingly positive.
Here’s some of the comments we received from major social media platform Twitter:
