Banky W, Dineo to co-host Channel O Music Video Awards

Nigerian R&B superstar, Banky W and Channel O’s Dineo have been confirmed as the co-host of the 2011 Channel O Music Video Awards event which will be held at Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg on Friday, November 11.

Since beating stiff competition to take the role of O-Access presenter last year, Dineo’s profile has risen with speed. In 2010, this multi-talented presenter and performing artist earned her first supporting role in the South African drama series, Soul City 10, as well as cameo appearances in the comedy City Ses’la and the soon to be released Winnie Mandela movie starring Terrence Howard and Jennifer Hudson.

A singer, songwriter, producer, entertainer and MC, Banky W whose appearance this year on L-Tido’s smash hit “It Aint My Fault” has significantly broadened his appeal across the African continent.

From his first record, ‘Undeniable: The EP’ to 2005’s R & B and soul-heavy ‘Back in the Buildin’, and 2009’s ‘The W Experience’, Banky W has proved his musical genius. He also co-owns one of Africa’s fastest-rising record labels, Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E), overseeing the careers of young and talented Nigerian artists, WizKid and Skales.
