DJs Crazy Black and Big Dee kept the party lovers on their feet the entire night with latest tunes, while hosts Mbo Mahocs and DJ Joe Tha Og were on top of their game.

The opening act Allaina, of the Juice Box fame, took to the stage clad in a black and white dress with lips painted black.

She churned the hit song nominated for the Zima best video award much to the delight of her fans.
