One of the biggest highlights from Saturday night’s MTV Africa Music Awards was seeing Zimbabwean singer, Jay Prayzah, walk away with a “Listener’s Choice” award. Jay has had a fantastic year, which included recording a video with Diamond Platnumz for their song “Watora Mari” but even he was surprised to hear his name called out at the MAMAs.
Jay became the first ever Zimbabwean to win an MTV award, making this a truly historic feat for the singer. He spoke with pride when he said:
“It’s an honour to have that award and when my manager came breaking the news to me, I was so excited! Even our performance changed. Unfortunately, we could not afford to cancel four shows on the day to attend the ceremony”
Hopefully next year we see the singer performing and attending the show too!
