All the ways in which the MTV Africa Awards were awful

The MTV Africa Awards held at the Velodrome near the National Stadium in Abuja last night. It was a disappointment. Let me tell you the ways:

1. The event management/security was dangerously sub par. There was no clear information on where to park, either on the ticket or via temporary signage around the venue. Consequently, hundreds of drivers had no idea where to leave their cars. This led to chaos and an hour wait to drive inside the stadium - with cars nosing against each other and tempers (mine included) raised. Getting inside the velodrome was a life-threatening experience. Hundreds of people forced through one-at-a-time like cattle to the slaughter. The crush was scary. At the gap in the metal fence blocking the flow was a white guy, exuding malevolence. He looked like ex-Mossad to me. I gave him some lip when I got near to the gap, telling him what a great job he was doing. He grabbed my face with his hand and squeezed it, and sneered, 'so what the fuck you gonna do huh?' A little later, I bumped into a female friend there who had come up from Lagos to see the event and had had a similar experience getting in. 'Never again' were her precise words.

2. The velodrome is NOT a venue for music events. The concrete curves of the place create the most unsuitable echoey acoustics. It was impossible to hear what the presenters/award givers/winners were saying. Ditto the acceptance speeches. I was thankful the place didn't collapse - as did the first version of this Julius Berger-erected white elephant (originally erected for the COJA games, never used since).

3. Quite why the event was billed as the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) is a mystery. In reality, the event was mostly a celebration of the derivative low-production-values drivel that is Nigerian hip-hop - Dbanj, P-Square and the like. There was no sense of a wider continent or variety, even from within the African hip-hop sub-genre. The audience screamed wildly whenever Dbanj's name was mentioned, but fell silent at the names of non-Nigerian artistes.

4. Trevor Nelson (the MC) is a prick. Some poor woman had to carry a towel and follow him round, de-shining his head every few moments. What kind of person insists on a towel carrier?

5. The headline act, The Game, looks like he has spent most of his time in a maximum security prison in an orange jumpsuit. Quite why he should be revered as a model for African youth is beyond me.

Now for the good points.

1. At least the velodrome didn't collapse
2. Seun Kuti is a star in the making. Give him a better venue and he would have thrilled
3. 9Ice is a subtle performer and one to watch. Again, give him a better venue and he might just provide a good night out
4. There was a young guy wearing jeans, t-shirt and a hausa cap at a jaunty angle. I quite like that fashion concept
5. Before the show, a guy started spinning trays and balancing a twirling bottle with a stick held between his teeth while doing the splits. Not sure how that was humanly possible

Apart from the This Day tent on the Lekki Expressway, Nigeria doesn't have a decent concert venue where thousands of people (especially young women) can safely enjoy live music. From the evidence of last night, neither is there a decent event-management/security outfit that can create a safe environment for events of this kind in Nigeria.

I thot that the thisday dome in Abuja is also a great venue.

Dbanj isnt even hip hop man!! If you dont like him, thats fair enough. His music isnt even hip hop at all. More African than anything else.

lola,  1:15 pm  

But he never said Dbanj was hip hop.

CodLiverOil 2:33 pm  

Jeremy, apart from giving me an initial laugh (you can seriously turn on the humour when you want to).

Have you decided to take action against the guy, who (dared) decided to use your face as a stress ball?

I know some people wouldn't let it drop, others may muster some false bravado and whilst walking away would shout out "you haven't heard the last of this!"

You decided against such a course of action, I see.

Jermy this is the funniest thing you have ever written! I swear im not being funny.. im cracking up! The mossad guy who all but assaulted you.. ur description of some1 who I can only assume is Naeto C..
The Game, who I guess you arent familiar with his brand of thug luvin,lol!
And of course Trev! lol! Every1 always says he such a prick, i guess i have to meet him to agree, but he always seems so smug! and he had a towel holder!lol!Already I love him, he fits the Naija society to a tee,lol!

You know, now I actually feel like i missed out!lol!

Tanx for this, cracked me up proper!

Jeremy 6:58 pm  

first anonymous: let's not nit-pick. I refuse to use that silly American euphemism of 'urban' music (when everyone knows they mean black music).

Anonymous,  7:42 pm  

I wouldnt expect you to understand or even enjoy African music if you are not african but to call it 'low production drivel'...that was a bit harsh. how do you think hard rock sounds to me? anyway you are entitled to your opinion.Tank God not everyone shares it.

Anonymous,  7:48 pm  

lol..Jeremy, was that naato C with the hausa Hat?

Why ddnt they use the conference centre or somfin?

Trevor Nelson was proper taking the Micky man..Towel Holder to shine hi "ogo"? Tosser

Jeremy 7:50 pm  

last anonymous: that is quite a juicy slice of inaninity you've served up there...

Following your logic, would you therefore agree that it should be no surprise that Africans cannot appreciate/enjoy Western classical music?

Music having low production values is what it says on the tin: music that has been poorly produced. It has no relationship to whether one 'understands' or 'enjoys' any music genre, regardless of where the music comes from or where the listener comes from.

RJ 8:01 pm  

U life must be a SAD one really, if u have to find fault in everything. Sit and enjoy the thing and be happy that these (African) artists are finally getting some kind of recognition - this is MTV Africa's first award show after all, and I’m sure as the years go by they would find better venues and performers.
Why it was billed the MAMA? Well Jeremy, even MTV awards in the U.K, majority of the time u find more Americans winning most awards than brits or Europeans – MTV is all about popular music, music that is played on a daily basis on radio stations/TV in a continent, it doesn’t necessarily have to be good music or make much sense really. Now the way these awards work is people vote in each category for who they think is best – its no ones fault if more Nigerians voted or Nigerian songs are more popular than any other much like the movies

Besides, aren't u a little old to attend such events?

You complain so much aboout everything, then do soomething about it gaddamit!

Jeremy 8:07 pm  

RJ: I think if you asked anyone who was not a VVIP about the way the event was organised, they would pretty much say the same as me: it was a dehumanising, brutal experience. Ditto the dreadful acoustics. As for the quality of the music: that's moot. Definitely the production values of Nigerian pop music have yet to reach the standards of the black American paradigm. this is partly laziness/lack of production talent and partly because of the enormous problem of piracy in Nigeria.

MTV Africa is not a patch on Channel O in terms of representing different forms of African pop music. It really showed last night..

Anonymous,  8:47 pm  

This your last comment here is absolutely right Jewremy. This over-hyped watery soup served to us gullible NIgerians cannot hold a candle to a night party that Channel O organised. They dont get it! And Storm and the others who were part of this Sham should be ashamned of themselves!

but you know what you wer ewasking for when you pompously submitted (not unlike me above here eh?): "derivative low-production-values drivel that is Nigerian hip-hop - Dbanj, P-Square and the like" - well, Jeremy what you just say now is Baloney; By what parameters do you call dbanj's music or 9ice's production drivel?>????!? ignorant baloney and you know it! But of course you knew that when you wrote this i'm sure...

Florence Kayemba 9:24 pm  

Its great that Nigerian artistes got most of the awards ...Im only trying to be patriotic here. However, I was rather disappointed to see that this was the best music Africa could come up with. In short, these guys are the best there is, so where does that leave the rest of Africa?

Either most countries did not take these awards seriously and hardly made any submissions or the Nigerians were able to do their homework well and persuade the rest of Africa to vote for them.

I have no idea. As far as I am concerned those guys do not represent what Africa has to offer. We can do better than that.

yodude,  2:29 am  

Hey Jeremy, sometimes I feel for you the way you're always on the defensive on your blog especially when people start bring up your not being Nigerian/Black. Pele o.

On the whole low production values thing, it comes with the territory of popular music (pop). No one would accuse Hugh Masekela or Asha of having such and by all accounts D'banj is a pop star. Most of the production for pop music is lazy or half hearted and we all have songs we all love to hate and then reminice about when music was better. (End of arguement??)

Besides you should have lived in Nigeria long enough to know what to expect if not part of the 'VVIP'... even if it shouldnt be so.


"the event was mostly a celebration of the derivative low-production-values drivel that is Nigerian hip-hop - Dbanj, P-Square and the like"

oh m, don't let D'Banj's kokolettes get you. They will not be pleased when they read this.

In general, the awards show is being received positively abroad. Good to read your personal take on things though.

Kody 10:19 am  

If there is one industry where standards have improved enormously, it is definitely the Nigerian music scene. I am not talking about the wannabe American hip hop artists who sing and prance around on stage with droopy trousers and condoms on their head, more the ones that inject elements of our culture and language into their music and sound original..

I absolutely love Nigerian music right now. Neeto C and D'Banj especially, but it is evident that production is still a major issue. Anyone who knows and loves music would be kidding themselves to say otherwise.

I didn't get to see the show but whatever was wrong - it was the South Africans wot done it!

Lastly..... Jeremy, I am sure, knows better than to get into a physical battle with an '..ex Mossad' - I sure wouldn't. I would come up with a killer insult, but only when I was at a safe distance with a clear path ahead!!

Mike,  10:46 am  

Nigerian music production is poor. That is just not debatable - it is a fact on so many levels.

Whether the music is any good (songwriting/ideas) is debatable but on the whole I would say it is poor - by any standard. But then you get what you pay for and if that's what the people like then who am I to argue?

@Anonymous 7.42 - you are musically ignorant.


Anonymous,  11:15 am  

Anon 7.42: so only Africans can enjoy and understand African music? What a load of drivel.

I love Dbanj and 9ice and co, but I do think that the production value, the musical arrangement is low and could do be a little bit better. I am excited by the new crop of Nigerian artists, not because of the production quality, but some of the talent. When you are musically attuned,it is difficult to accept the production quality of many a Nigeria musician.

btw, I was at the award. It was bad, badly organised. The security guys were rough even towards young people. The venue is all wrontg. The acoustics was awlful. the sound was just bouncing all over the place which made the output all jagged up.

Waffarian 11:25 am  

I don't listen to pop music just because of the crap that is out there. I can't stand a lot of the rap/hip hop produced by Americans or Nigerians in general.

I understand that it is fun to dance to cos of the beats but really, anything with "booty" in it is just crap...booty shaking, booty winding, booty this and booty that...

I think all Naija artists are "fun" as in good for parties and messing around...very entertaining...

do I think its worth spending money on?

HELL NO! The last album was a collection of reggae hits or some shit like that and thats cos I wanted just one song in it...(I could buy Asa's album though)

Also, taste in music, films, theatre, arts in general is very personal. I prefer to listen to reggae and everything else is just crap to me but thats just my own taste. I had a friend who listened to "drum and base" and I thought I might kill him one day, yet he seemed to be in "heaven" anytime what I thought was crap came on.

Waffarian 11:35 am  

And I will NEVER apologise for not liking "gongo aso" and 9ice's music. I think his music sucks as well. Yeah, thats right, I said it!

and I don't care if the whole WORLD thinks he is a genius. That's MY opinion and I am sticking with it!

Anonymous,  12:02 pm  

J, I feel sorry for you sometimes.... why would you want to upset all these nigerians, who keep burying their heads in the sand about anything bad and sub-standard in Nigeria?

I am a Nigerian and I share your views; Naija music production is poor, with the exception of a few. Period!

9ice, Asha, seun and a few others are great. The rest?, juts a bunch of talentless people. Trevor Nelson? he is fish!!!!!!!!! I cringte everything I make the mistake of tunnning to MTV.

J, don't mind these people jare, you are a Nigerian in my eyes and you see the sincere love for the country through your "criticism" and I am woman enough to face up to it.

R.E.II (The Missing Chapters) 1:25 pm  

gongo aso" and 9ice's music...I love

Kody 1:44 pm  

My guess if Waffarian got out of the wrong side of bed today!!

Kola,  2:39 pm  

Dude with Hausa Cap is Naeto C. He is the son of a big woman in Nigeria's political landscape and yet pursuing his passion for music.

Like the Eton educated head of their label record, they are blazing the trail.

On another note J, I think you should give Nigerian musicians some props. Even in the Channel O music awards this year, Nigerian acts dominated. I mean P Square were just winning award after award. I concur with the person who said they are not really hip hop as well. I mean they are projecting Nigerian vernacular.

Anonymous,  3:39 pm  

Anon 11.15 why dont you be real? Have you seen an oyinbo dancing to african music? Like he is having a seizure or somethg! I will not sit back and let some ignorant ***** abuse Nigerian music and call it drivel. If Jeremy doesnt like it he should shut up and go back to his his country.I will not accept him or anyone insulting my country, country men and music. As for all you 'uncle-toming' nigerians suffering from colonial mentality, eff-off! pity the moussad guy didnt finish the job!

Last anonymous. Let me be clear - I love many types of Nigerian music - traditional northern stuff, fuji, old skool highlife yada yada.

Its the pop stuff which irks.

However, this is subjective (whereas the first two points about the MAMA event are not). I'm not sure I'm much of a fan of pop music in the West these days either. You get older, you get more selective I suppose...

However, if you permit me to use your logic, are you suggesting that any Nigerian who doesn't like aspects of their environment in the US or the UK had better fuck-off back home too? Its a peculiar line of reasoning: that to be entitled to live somewhere in the world, one must unconditionally love that place and never say anything critical. I wonder if you yourself would pass this test?

Anonymous,  4:02 pm  

"Anonymous 3:39. You just made me smile for the fist time today. Hehe, oyinbo dancing to African music..

But hey lets face it, if Jeremy has said anything useful at all, he said "...Definitely the production values of Nigerian pop music have yet to reach the standards of the black American paradigm.." This is true!

However, my take on it is that sriving to attain the standanrds of African American music production is not the focus in Nigeria. Nigerian artistes are moving in a different direction and breaking new ground.

Anon 3:39, leave Jeremy alone. Even we Nigerians cannot stop insulting our country

Anonymous,  5:06 pm  

Anon at the last post, my people say 'when you defecate on the way to the stream you shd expect flies to swarm there on your return'. In other words when you say somethg that particularly strong abt smeone or smthg expect equally strong reactions. its all good. Like i said we are all entitled to our opinions but thank God not all agree with you. I dont need a whiteman to validate me or my music. its not for you its for the african youth. By the way, find some other country to pick on preferably Iraq and specifically around the Tora Bora mountains!

Anonymous,  5:13 pm  

Anon 4.02...yes we nigerians can insult our but then its ours... African Americans can call themselves niggers but if others frm another race do....(remember Don Imus?) I rest my case!

Jeremy 5:22 pm  

Last anonymous - quite why you reduce criticism to 'insults' is beyond me. The only way any work (creative or otherwise) improves is via criticism, not via praise. Its basic stuff really.

Anyone who wants to achieve excellence in their field asks for criticism, not congratulation.

Trying to play the race card on me just doesn't work. Its a tired old silencing strategy..

Perhaps the inability to accept criticism from the outside is part of the reason why Nigeria is a bastion of mediocrity right now..

opium,  5:36 pm  

The comments made by certain people and the discourse between the aggreived anonymous and Jeremy reminded me of a quote in a book that I recently read. At the time I read it and thought ... this is a perfect summary of a Nigerian malaise - lack of critical thinking and thereby completely embracing mediocrity. It is not enough that MAMA was held in Nigeria, surely we ought to be open to feedback, no matter how unpleasant to hear, on how to make it better.

“certain cultures do not have [a] critical spirit … they are inclined to pride, to thinking that all that belongs to them is perfect; they are … uncritical in relation to themselves. They lay the blame for all that is evil on others. They consider criticism to be a malevolent attack, a sign of discrimination … these cultures treat criticism as a personal insult, as a deliberate attempt to humiliate them … the effect of all of this is that they are culturally, permanently, structurally incapable of progress, incapable of engendering within themselves the will to transform and evolve”

Ms. Catwalq 9:01 pm  

I think we have to start making educated analyses of anything that comes out of our country.

Any knowledgeable Nigerian is aware that when it comes to presentation, event production, management and coordination, most of the time, we fall short...

The analysis that was this blog is based on someone's experience at an event and not out of prejudice...those who are irritated that a non-Nigerian dares to criticise, should make sure that no one catches them making criticisms of their own...(of other cultures, Nigerian or otherwise)

Gbemi,  9:49 pm  

To Opium: This is a fantastic quote. Please share the source. I love it. It describes Nigerians perfectly and many many Africans. We are so brittle and this is coming out of profound shame and a total lack of grounding in who we as a people. So when we are critiqued we result to personal attacks.

Anonymous,  9:53 pm  

Lol, its funny to read Nigerians tell other people to "leave my country" when they are in any other man's land themselves. Tbh, I am a huge fan jeremy and keep up the good work. I'm so glad that you covered MAMA because I was all hyped about it but now that i discovered how poorly it was managed, i have changed my mind. But honestly, lets cut them some slack, Nigeria isn't exactly the best location for awards of this sort. I cant think of another location worthy of hosting such an event.

Le Phillippe

Ps. Jeremy keep up the good work mate. :)

Kody 7:44 am  

Anon who made the 'go back to your country' comment - you are a DINGBAT

Anyways, I think Naetto C has got to be of the most effortlessly cool and stylish artist around. At MM airport yesterday, I spotted three copycats of the Hausa cap look; two carried it off well, the third looked like a twat because he went OTT with a walking stick and cigar.

Waffy and Jeremy, listen to Naetto's album without prejudice to your taste. D'banj new album too is much improved.

I listen, appreciate and CRITICIZE music from any source. And by the way, I think Seun Kuti is crap.

Anonymous,  11:42 am  

banj is an empty barrel making as much noise as possible. ditto these other 'afro-hiphop exponents, psquare & co.

Latifa 12:01 pm  

As much as I appreciate your candid opinion...every1 has a right to one...I'm quite stunned to read a lot of jargon...

Who cares about high-level production...we just want to listen to good music! 8 years ago...African music was not very ubiquitous...see how far the music has gone now, it's reaching a wider audience...and the future is hopeful!

Why sit on your high horse and judge!! You should find a solution to the production and piracy issue instead of ranting and moaning...

I'm sick of MTV awards these days...they are all getting quite boring every year 4 the past 4 years anywayz...

The EMA is always dominated by American artists...we, the public/fans, vote, not MTV!!! it's the votes that count!!! So what if Nigerians dominated MAMA...the reason why no1 scream for non-Nigerian artists is because they don't know who they are...but now they do. Alot of Nigerians have pictures of Cassette on facebook right now..I didn't know who Cassette is/are until MAMA. Who is Josi? I found out through MAMA. That's one of the main reason behind the award...I know it will get better next year. I'm sure they are taking notes of their mistakes and errors.

African music will soon find an outstanding genre but for now, entertainment and good music is all I care about!

And stop criticizing when you obviously don't have any solution or positive ideas to contribute...

FYI, I love African music...MAMA introduced WAHU, HHP, Samini, etc music to me. At least, now, I know they exist!

Don't forget constructive criticism goes a long way...I only glimpse a tiny bit of that in your piece.

Your piece doesn't really matter...Dbanj, PSquare, Naeto C and etc have won, the deed is done, so stop crying over spilled milk...these guys will continue to progress. KORA awards will also prove their potential. WATCH THIS SPACE...

Anonymous,  12:05 pm  

@opium and othjers,

The problem with Jeremy's criticism is that it goes - as usual - overboard. It is dismissive instead of being critical.

It is one thing to say Nigerian pop has 'low production values'; but to call it 'drivel' was gratuitous and unnecessary. Quintessential Jeremy, but not helpful to progress disocurse towards any useful end.

That';s why they say cr4iticism should be constructive to be useful. Obviously Jeremy has yet to receive that memo.

Jeremy 12:17 pm  

Nice couple of last comments. I take them on board - I do go ott sometimes (i get my bitchy tongue from my father!) Definitely Naija pop music is improving. My main gripe was with the security and the crap echo of the venue, not the music..

Alpha 12:24 pm  

WOW. Tempers r really rising.

First of all, I have to point out that I don’t agree with one of Jeremy’s points- as an event manager based here in Abuja and I have attended courses all over the world on staging super events and other events as well. In Nigeria, we are limited by quality equipment. Every bit of event equipment or facility is crap or close to it. But hey, it’s easy to purchase or even rent them if we are accorded the same biz opportunities as every1. facilities and equipment dont grow on trees.

This event was not open for everyone to bid or was it open to us non-Lagos clique event people. There are competent people but like everything else in Nigeria, nothing is fair and open.

Anonymous- hmmm. How do statements like that help anything?
Your line of thought is exactly why we are swimming in our own crap and pretending we are in a rose filled Jacuzzi.
Criticism is an important part of progress. How do you expect to be better if as soon as one makes his opinion of something, all hell breaks loose and you go loco with all that racist other old crap.
Anyway, to avoid rambling on and on,

1.I like Nigerian music- it needs some work but it has come a long way against all "odds" Nigeria is a difficult place for anything that isn’t a govt official or oyinbo oil company to thrive.
2. Old? How is one too old to attend a music event? Jeez, snap put of it. I guess you're one of those old farts at 30.
3.hmmm Trevor...He is a fine brother but I agree he is a prick.

Anonymous,  3:21 pm  

Okay, away from the whole music discussion. -sitting with a friend who took her kids who says the show was terrible, that the acoustics were awful. It was echooey, and they couldn't hear anything, just muffled noise. she says the VIP tickets were nonsense, she felt like they were just used by MTV as props. it was dangerous, there was bottle breaking and fighting outside when they were leaving. There were only 2 open gated entrances for thousands and thousands to get in. my guess, my 2 cents if you will, and i just might be wrong,is that no fire marshall had inspected and approved (ha!) the venue (exits and entrances) in case of fire/stampede/emergency. In another country, South Africa for example, MTV would not have been allowed to stage the show under such circumstances. By the time my friend and her kids got to the front of" the line"(whatever) they were no more bracelets to prove they had purchased tickets.. The whole thing was a sham really.

why do u think they didnt have a live show on tv? With people scurrying all across the stage to set up Djs, etc all in the audiences view? come on! a curtain would have saved all the trouble.
