Mike Dada, executive producer, AFRIMA, said the collaboration between the two popular hosts of the award ceremony will be explosive.

“With 2Face and Madinga, two accomplished creative Africans holding sway and guiding our distinguished guests and nominees through the programme, we promise to bring to Africa electrifying performances from our nominees and invited guest performers,” Dada said.

Mandinga, with a towering height of 1.78m, looks every inch a model. She is the hottest female broadcaster in Kinshasa, DRC.

Her musical show, Cite de Star is the biggest music show in DRC.

A truly home grown music star, 2Face Idibia is one of the most decorated and successful Afro pop artistes in Africa.

He is also one of the most bankable artistes on the continent.
