Wyclef and Akon Bare All at MAMA 2009, Much to the Delight of Female Audience Members

Nairobi shook on Oct. 10 when the biggest and best in African music received their awards at the much anticipated MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA), now in its second year.

The event was hosted at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani Indoor Arena, and the exclusive after party was held at one of Nairobi’s best hotels: Tribe – The Village Market Hotel.

Highlights of the evening, aside from seeing D’Banj of Nigeria win “best artist of the year” and Amani win the “best female award”, were the antics between international hip hop legend (and MAMA host) Wyclef Jean, and superstar and headliner for the evening, Akon.

The pair decided to have a crazy push-up contest on stage to see who had the bigger guns.

And, when the ladies in the audience thought things couldn’t get hotter, the pair did back-flips up to the front of the stage and pulled down their pants. (Akon actually shoved a microphone down his boxers… how much that mic is worth now? Inquiring minds want to know.)
