Season 6

The 2009 Channel O MVAs took place on Thursday 29 October 2009 in Johannesburg at Carnival City and were broadcast on Sunday 8 November 2009, at 21h00.

They were preceded by a half-hour special at 20h30 called the 2009 Awards Red Carpet. Carnival City was the venue for the 2009 event, which saw Africa’s top artists turn out to celebrate the best the continent has to offer.

The red carpet was abuzz with action as the nominees, performers and celebrities made their way into the Big Top Arena on the evening of October 29th.

From South Africa’s Da L.E.S to Zimbabwe’s Buffalo Souljah, Namibia’s Gal Level and Nigeria’s Darey Art Alade, Africa’s biggest stars could be seen when the Channel O Music Video Awards Red Carpet Special kicked off at 20h30.

At 21h00 it was time for the real fireworks to begin as a parade of winners took to the podium to receive their awards.

The real highlight of this year’s Channel O Music Video Awards were the live performances, which included a tribute to Special Recognition award recipient, Brenda Fassie.

In what many concluded was the heart and soul of this year’s event, Brenda’s son, Bongani (of Jozi fame) and Winnie Khumalo ignited the stage with renditions of two of Brenda’s biggest hits – ‘Weekend Special’ and ‘Vulindlela’.

Other performances came from Nigerian singer-songwriter, Nneka, South Africa’s HHP, African Hip-Hop Royalty for the Emcee Africa II winner track “All Around Africa” as well as TKZEE in one of their first live television performances since getting back in the studio.

The show closed in roaring style with a performance by Mozambique’s Lizha James who brought down the house with her Afrocentric number.

Also adding to the night’s entertainment were hosts Vuzu presenter Nonhle and Channel O’s Lungile and KB. They were joined by an impressive lineup of guest presenters including Channel O VJs Chuma, the Twinz, Enhle and Top Mais host, Weza.
