There were moments of joy, as the audience enjoyed performances from Lizzo,  and the revellers went into a frenzy when Brandy did a surprise act with Jack Harlow.

The awards event was  fired up with a surprise performance from   Mariah Carey and Latto, who lit up the audience.

Legendary American rapper,  music producer and actor Sean “Diddy” Combs received a lifetime achievement award.

His achievements in the industry were celebrated by a host of fellow artistes and former collaborators like Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, among others.
