MTV Music Award Winners [2009] & Others.

Did any of you really see Akon and Wyclef doing the push ups at the MTV Africa Music Awards in Nairobi, Kenya? The photo below speaks a lot for it self.

There is a saying that; "You can take a man out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of him." So, Wyclef dares Akon to do 20 push ups on stage during the MAMA Awards. They agree and part of the agreement is to strip to their boxers, I guess?

Wyclef as you can clearly see strips down and so does Akon. But, of course Akon had to take it a step further into foolishness... He takes his mic and puts into his boxers. The rest is self explanatory. Pure foolishness, right..!!!

Aside their foolishness, Ghanaian Hip Life great and MOBO Award winning artist, Samini also won the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards For Best Performer.

Nigeria's D'Banj emerged as artiste of the year for the second year running. The show which took place today at the Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi, Kenya saw Wyclef Jean [host of the awards] and Akon performing on stage. Lucky Dube was honoured while Wyclef and Akon did a tribute to the late Legend of pop music; Michael Jackson.
