MTV has revealed it will sponsor 4 creative minds to the forth coming MTV African Music Awards in Durban South Africa on July 18.
The four creative prodigies to work at the MAMA include: a dancer with the moves and charisma to light up the stage, a photographer with a knack for capturing the perfect moment, a social media journalist who knows just what MTV Base’s audience wants and a videographer with the skills to work in the high pressured, live environment.
Each winner will get the chance to attend the MAMA 2015 in Durban, be part of the MTV Base team, and work alongside an experienced mentor in the relevant discipline.
According to the music channel, it will cover all travel and accommodation costs.
Commenting, Tim Horwood, Channel Director, MTV Base said “This is the chance for keen young creatives in different disciplines to prove themselves at Africa’s biggest music event.”
“With the help of talented newcomers with a fresh perspective, we can make the best show in Africa even better, while simultaneously offering them the opportunity to gain real-life experience and add weight and depth to their résumés,” he added.
The MTV Africa Music Awards 2015 will broadcast live on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) and MTV (DStv Channel 130) on Saturday July 18, 2015. The show will also be transmitted worldwide on partner stations and content platforms.
