Burna Boy Wins Big At The 2019 Soundcity MVP Awards

Last year, new artists, such as Teni, successfully seized the limelight, while more established acts, such as Burma Boy, attained even greater heights. The list of nominees for the 2019 Soundcity MVP Awards reflected this, as did the winners who took home trophies on Saturday.

Since the release of Outside, Burna Boy has enjoyed a well-deserved surge of attention and acclaim. It comes as no surprise, then, that his name was announced a total of four times, as he won 'Song of the Year', 'African Artiste of the Year', 'Best Male MVP' and 'Listener's Choice'.

Joining Burna Boy, were other obvious winners such as Teni for 'Best New Act', Mr Eazi for 'Digital Artiste of the Year' and Patoranking’s "Heal D World" for 'Video of the Year'; while the awards for 'Best Hip-Hop Artiste' and 'Best Female MVP' went to South African acts, AKA and Busiswa.
