The Nominees For The 2016 All Africa Music Awards Are Out
So much to my surprise, chagrin, perturbation and general befuddlement, there are two very different awards with the same name, that both celebrate African music. Why it took me so long to piece this together, I do not know. But the nominees for the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) have been announced. These however should be confused with the African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA). The AFRIMA awards will be held in Nigeria once again from the 4-6 November. A team consisting of 5 regional directors and 54 country directors came up with nominees for this year’s awards show.
You can view all the nominees in the slideshow above. Hip Hop nominees include;
- Franko and Jovi who are both nominated in the Best Male Central Africa category.
- Navio is nominated in the Best Male (East) Category but faces steep competition from Diamond Platnumz and recent Sony signing Alikiba
- Sarkodie and Wizkid are part of the Best Male (West) nominees list. Surprisingly Davido, Olamide and Phyno have been overlooked
- No Women in Hip Hop Nominated in the West or South Categories
- AKA, Anatii and Kwesta all get nods from the South. Surprisingly no Nasty Cor Riky Rick . They even Nasty’s name from Jump’s nomination.
- Victoria Kimani from The East gets a nod for Booty Bounce
Voting details will be added once they are relased by AFRIMA
