MTV Awards postponed

The MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) that were to be held in Uganda this month have been postponed!

This was the first time that Uganda was to host the event something that would have made it only the fourth nation to so, other countries that have hosted include Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya.

According to Uganda Tourism Board chief executive officer Lilly Ajarova, the reason for the postponement was because of Internet “issues” and the coronavirus pandemic.

“There was a discussion about the postponement of the event. We still have issues with the Internet yet the event is supposed to be virtual. There was an issue of coronavirus,” Ms Ajarova said.

It should be noted that Uganda blocked social media platforms and also shut down the internet following allegations that communications during the 2021 General Election last month would endanger security.
