GLOBAL SUPERSTAR NE-YO TO PERFORM AT MTV AFRICA MUSIC AWARDS 2015
Grammy Award winning R&B icon, NE-YO, has been
announced to perform at the MTV Africa Music Awards 2015.
Performing songs from his sixth studio album ‘Non
Fiction’ the singer-songwriter expressed his excitement about his first ever
performance in the South African city, “I can’t wait for you to see what I have
in store Durban! I hope you’re ready, because I am!”
Since smashing onto the top spot of the Billboard
Hot 200 Chart back in 2006 with his sophomore single “So Sick”, NE-YO has spent
the last nine years churning out hit after hit, not only as a performer, but as
a songwriter for his megastar peers Beyoncé, Rihanna and the late Michael
Jackson to name but a few. Multiple platinum singles, four hit albums and three
Grammy Awards later, the hit-maker is ready to share his latest work with the
world.

Events, Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) commented: “We are thrilled
to have NE-YO join us in

Durban.  He’s an
incredible artist who will elevate the MAMA to new highs.”

Durban.  As a sensational live perfomer
and truly accomplished R&B star, NE-YO’s an all-round class act who will
greatly complement the African performers on the show.”
