D’banj is beyond words as he gives his speech after winning the ‘Best Male Video’ award

The just concluded Chanel O Music Video Awards that was held yestersday, November 17, 2012  at the Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown, Soweto was the best of its kind.

Nigerian acts played the bosses as they clinched more of the whole awards. 6 Nigerians out of 13 nominations emerged winners.

D’banj impressed as always, winning the ‘Most Gifted Male Video of the Year’ award. He had missed the show last year where he was to be given the ‘Special Recognition’ award. Our beloved Psquare was honoured with the  ‘Most Gifted Group/Duo’ award for their collaboration with May D on the hit single ‘Chop my money,’ and Highlife crooner, Flavour secured the ‘Most Gifted R&B Music Video of the year’ award with the song, ‘Oyi’ on which he collaborated with Tiwa Salvage.

The event was so fun. Ice Prince and South African model, Bonang Matheba did a great job hosting the awards.
