American DJ, record producer, and media personality Khaled Mohammed alias DJ Khaled will host the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) on February 20. MAMA will be held in Kampala, Uganda.

โ€œMTV has always been a great partner so I jumped at the opportunity to host this yearโ€™s MAMAs,โ€ writes DJ Khaled on social media. “I canโ€™t wait to celebrate the incredible music that comes out of Africa, which has inspired me throughout my career.โ€

He’ll host the event at the comfort of his home in Miami, Florida, alongside other African co-emcees. Some of these emcees will be physically present in Kampala.
