R&B singer Banky W has been confirmed host for this year’s Channel O Music Video Awards come 11th November. He shares anchor duties with South African veejay Dineo Moeketsi. The “Mr Capable’’ crooner who was a nominee last year responded thus;
“It’s truly a great honor for me to be chosen as this year’s host. Channel O has been one of the greatest platforms for African artists over the years, and the award show is always a spectacular event, the show has a history of raising the bar and setting the standard for events in our continent. I’m so proud to be part of it. I’m very excited about the opportunity and I hope and pray that I do a great job as anchor. I plan on working with the team to ensure that this year’s show is the biggest and best celebration of African music that we’ve had till date.’’
