Season 4

Celebrating musicians and achievers who have made the most impact on African youth culture throughout the year, MAMA 2014 features dazzling performances from African and international artists, including the awards' signature collaborations between artists of different genres and cultures – a high point of every show.

Artists were recognised in thirteen different award categories including Best Male, Best Female and Best New Act. This year, three new "lifestyle" awards will be added to the music categories, including the "MAMA Leadership Award" and "Personality of the Year".

A special award, "Transform Today by Absolut", celebrates the power of young individuals to transform the image of Africa through their creativity and vision.

The awards were preceded by three "Road to MAMA" events in Durban, South Africa, Lagos, Nigeria and Nairobi, Kenya, building up to the main show, featuring MAMA nominees alongside the most current local artists and DJs. The events took place during April and May 2014.

Celebrating musicians and achievers who have made the most impact on African youth culture throughout the year, MAMA 2014 will, for the first time ever, premiere live across Africa on MTV Base and MTV at 21h00 CAT. The show will also air tape-delayed across BET's international footprint. A one-hour MTV World Stage special will also air around the world.

First staged in 2008, the MTV Africa Music Awards has recognised the talent of musicians from across sub-Saharan Africa, rewarding iconic artists such as 2Face Idibia, Big Nuz, HHP, P-Square, Liquideep, D'Banj, Lira, Nameless, Wahu, Fally Ipupa, Cabo Snoop, Zebra & Giraffe, and many more.

The 2014 awards were open to all artists whose music videos were accepted for airplay on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) or MTV (DStv Channel 130) during the qualifying period - 20 March, 2013 to 19 March, 2014.

On 23 May, 2014 MTV Base revealed that American actor, producer, stand-up comedian, writer and film director Marlon Wayans would be the official host for the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards.
