The occasion that attracted musicians and artists from various countries in Africa was held on Saturday 10th
 October 2009 at Moi International Sports Complex, Kassarani, in Nairobi, Kenya.

Dr. Saad Al Barrak, CEO of Zain, the co-sponsor of the MAMAs, said the evening confirmed the huge talent that Africa possesses and the influence it had upon the world of music. Much of the music we listen to today has its roots in this great continent. I cannot emphasize strongly enough what a privilege it is for Zain to lend its name to such an event. In doing so, we are both keeping alive the flame of Africas cultural consciousness and delivering on our promise to bring you A wonderful world.
