This morning we received word via a press release that comedian and actor Marlon Wayans is going to add Hosting to his resume as he has signed on to host a show for MTV, for their sister network in Africa titled the MTV Africa Music Awards!
This news comes as a surprise because the show hasn’t been on the air in over three years and was thought to never revive again because of declining ratings. The show will be held in the coastal resort of Durban, South Africa, on June 7th and air globally through a combination of pay TV and terrestrial distribution, according to MTV.
The show is said to recognize youth culture, music and other standouts from sub-Saharan Africa, rewarding achievement in 18 different categories, including music and Iifestyle.
Stay tuned as this story is developing!
