AFRIMA plays a very important role in Africa when it comes to promoting African music beyond the borders of the continent. The 5th edition held in Accra last week had many stars and African Icons in attendance such as Boby wine and Yvonne Chaka Chaka. It was inspiring to see Yvonne Chaka Chaka delivering an advocacy speech about artists rights and roles in our African societies.
With a total of 36 categories, the 5th AFRIMA winners are culled from the Regional and Continental categories. Nigerian star Davido won both the Artist of The Year and the Best Male Artiste in Western Africa awards.
In fact, the 30 billion artist has become, in a few years, the ambassador of Afropop around the world. The 26-year-old star also accounts for amazing collaborations with famous American DJs and rappers such as Future, and Young Thug.
