Nigerian superstar Naeto C and South African airwaves hotshot, AKA, have been announced as the co-hosts of the upcoming 10th Annual Channel O Africa Music Video Awards.

The two will bring a one-two star punch to the star-studded live show, taking place on Saturday, 30 November at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown Soweto, South Africa, which is expected to be attended by the who’s who of the African entertainment scene.

Naeto C and AKA’s star wattage will also be on full display to music fans throughout Africa as the two keep the action rolling during the broadcast, which goes out LIVE on Channel O at 20:00 CAT.

“I’m really excited to host this year’s Channel O Africa Music Video Awards, especially on its 10th anniversary,” says Naeto C. “To be a part of this experience is totally awesome and I look forward to sharing this magical moment with the rest of Africa on November 30th.”

The Nigerian artist’s sentiments are echoed by AKA.

“I am very honoured to co-host this celebration of Africa’s finest talent with Naeto C. I won my first Channel O Music Video award in 2011 and two years later, being in this position is testament to my loyal following. Thank You to Channel O and the fans, it’s going to be a classic night,” says AKA

Naeto C has enjoyed a lengthy association with the Channel O Africa Music Video Awards. In 2009 he won the highly coveted Video of the Year award for his blowout hit, “Ki Ni Big Deal”, in 2010 the track “Ako Mi Ti Poju” saw him take home the Most Gifted Hip Hop Video award and a year later, Most Gifted African West Video was awarded to “10 Over 10”.

AKA, meanwhile, is a multiple nominee in 2013, with no less than three nods in the Video of the Year category – for his own song “Jealousy” and two collaborations, Xtatic/AKA & Priddy Ugly’s “Hit ‘Em Up” and Zeus ft AKA & Tumi’s “#DatsWasup”. “Jealousy” is also in the running for Most Gifted Hip Hop – a category AKA won in 2011 for another of his growing list of chart-bangers, “Victory Lap”.

The 10th Annual Channel O Africa Music Video Awards have all the makings of a thrilling affair when the live event takes place on Saturday, 30 November in Soweto.
