Metro Awards


MMA 16: The biggest night in music


It’s that time of the year again, to book flights, make accommodation requests (but by now it may be a bit late), purchase those items that you have been eyeing and make way up to the Durban, Kwa-ZuluNatal province for the 16th annual Metro FM Music Awards taking place at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre on February 25.


The night will be filled with the who’s who of industry heavyweights, those who want to be seen and of course some a lot of high fashion hits and misses (there have been a few over the years).

Let’s not forget about the awards themselves though, the Metro FM Awards are seen as one of the most prestigious a musician can receive. Leading the Award nominations Amanda Black with 5 nominations, with Kwesta, Nasty C and Babes Wodumo, on heels with 4 nominations each. Last year Emtee and Fifi Cooper were the biggest winners, can record label Ambitiouz Entertainment do it again with Amanda Black?

No award’s show is complete without an after party, and there will definitely be a slew of them in Durban this weekend, so be sure to check them out.

Who do you think the big winners will be?
