8th Afrima Full List Of Winners

Davido, Burna Boy, Wizkid, Marwan Moussa, and more won big at the 8th AFRIMA Awards.


The All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA)recently descended onto Dakar, Senegal for their eighth edition, ‘The Teganga Edition.’

The awards, which were held at the Dakar Arena, saw the likes of Nigerian superstaDavido take home three trophies in one night as he won the Best African Collaboration, Best Duo or Group in African Electro, and Best Male Artiste in African Inspirational Music categories.

Egyptian rapper Marwan Moussa followed closely, nabbing two wins for Best African Rapper/Lyricist and Best Duo or Group in African Hip Hop.

In other notable moments, Senegalese icons Youssou N’dour, Baaba Maal, and Ismaël Lô were given the AFRIMA Legend Award, which is selected by the awards’ international executive committee.

All of the winners across the remaining 39 categories for the 8th AFRIMA in Senegal were decided by popular vote across a pool of 9,067 submitted entries.

South Africa’s Costa Titch and Frrench-Congolese artist Dadju lead the group, with each artist earning six nominations. Burna Boy, KIzz Daniel, Tiwa Savage and Fireboy DML bagged nominations each.

This year, the organization received its highest number of entries ever recorded since the award show began in 2014. The award show’s jury chose 382 nominations across 39 musical categories, to underscore five African regions and the musical talents that represent those regions.

South African jury member Adam Tiran, said that he was confident that he and other members had made the right selections this year for talent.

“We are confident in our selection this year, after carefully reviewing all 9,076 entries. We are sure this is an accurate and inclusive representation of where the African music industry currently is,” said Tiran. “We have put in the effort to ensure that AFRIMA’s nominations remain as credible and authentic as always.”

West African countries led the charge with a total of 134 nominations, and this was followed by the Eastern African region, whose artists came to 69 nominations. Southern African artists followed behind with 68 nominations and Central African artists had 52 nominations, while Northern African artists had an entry totaling to 49 nominations. The global region for this year’s award show representing non-Africans pulled in 10 nominations.

The nominations fall into a variety of categories, according to Angela Martins, Head of Culture, African Union Commission on the Jury:

“The nominees list comprising 29 continental award categories and 10 regional award categories released for public voting on The remaining category for the “Legend Award” will be announced at the awards. Also, we brought back the “Best Soundtrack in a Movie, Series or Documentary” category, this year, due to the availability of quality entries for this year’s edition. Recall that we had to suspend it, last year, due to a shortage of quality entries, said Martins. “Overall, we are very proud and confident in our work, and we would continue to intensify our efforts to ensure AFRIMA remains the ultimate recognition of African music globally in line with its vision.”

Angelique Kidjo Wins 2023 Polar Music Prize

African music diva Angelique Kidjo has been awarded the Polar Music Prize 2023.

The multiple Grammy Award winner is one of three (3) Laureates who have been awarded the Polar Music Prize 2023.

The two (2) others are Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, one of the UK’s greatest independent record labels, and Estonian Arvo Pärt, the world’s most-performed living composer.

The Polar Music Prize ceremony will take place on Tuesday 23 May in Stockholm at the Grand Hôtel.

Since the inaugural ceremony in 1992, the Polar Music Prize has been renowned as music’s most prestigious honour. It has been celebrating the achievements of some of the world’s most important and inspiring musical figures for over three decades. The prize is presented in Stockholm in the presence of the Swedish Royal Family. Each Laureate will receive prize money of 600,000 Swedish Kroner (approx. £47,681/US $57,384).

Marie Ledin, managing director of the Polar Music Prize, said:

“We are delighted to honour these three Laureates who have all made such a global impact with their music. Angélique Kidjo is an inspirational artist, she constantly explores and challenges and is one of the greatest singer-songwriters in international music. We are thrilled to be recognising her talent and shining a light on her important work with the Batonga Foundation.

On being awarded the Polar Music Prize, Angélique Kidjo said: “My passion for music has always been unwavering. Being on stage for me is like being in paradise – it’s my sanctuary. It’s my place to link and to connect with my fellow human beings. That is something that I’m grateful for every day.

“To be awarded the Polar Music Prize is humbling. I have no words to say how important this is for me. It comes with a sense of responsibility that is bestowed upon me as an artist to continue to do great work. I will do my best to be a proud recipient of the Prize through my work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, on behalf of the children, and as an ambassador of music, to help create a world in which we can all live in peace. Thank you so much for making me part of this prestigious Prize, in such a prestigious company.”

Angélique Kidjo is a five-time Grammy Award winner, a creative force with 16 albums to her name, and was named “Africa’s premier diva” by Time Magazine. Furthermore, the BBC included Kidjo in its list of ‘The Continent’s 50 Most Iconic Figures’. She was included in The Guardian’s ‘Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World’, and was the first woman on Forbes’ list of ‘The Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa’.

As a performer, Angélique’s striking voice, stage presence and fluency in multiple cultures and languages has won respect from her peers, expanding her following across national borders. She has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America.

Angélique travels the world advocating on behalf of children in her capacity as a UNICEF and OXFAM goodwill Ambassador. She has created her own charitable foundation, Batonga, dedicated to supporting the education of young girls in Africa.

Previous recipients of the Polar Music Prize include Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel, Chuck Berry, Ennio Morricone, Led Zeppelin, Patti Smith, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Kronos Quartet, Joni Mitchell, Elton John, Metallica, Iggy Pop, Ravi Shankar, Renée Fleming, Miriam Makeba, Wayne Shorter, Sofia Gubaidulina and many more.

I Would Have Been One Of The Top Artiste Now If Social Media Had Been Popular When I Started Music – King Paluta Reveals

King Paluta, renowned Ghanaian music artiste with the most popular song at the moment, ‘Yahitte Remix’ which features Strongman, Amerado, Qwame Stika and Andy Dosty has stated unequivocally that he would have been miles ahead of his game if social media had been widely accepted when he began his music career.

6ix9ine Hospitalized After Reportedly Being Attacked By Multiple Men In Florida Gym

American artist Tekashi 6ix9ine has been hospitalized following an ambush by a group of attackers in the bathroom of a gym in South Florida on Tuesday.

The rapper sustained injuries to his face and bruises, according to his attorney, Lance Lazzaro.

Lazzaro said the rapper was attacked in and outside the LA Fitness gym sauna by three or four men who beat him up, though he tried fighting back. “He had cuts to his face and bruises,” Lazzaro said. The attorney said that the perpetrators fled after employees heard the disturbance.

Police in South Florida were called, and Hernandez was transported via ambulance to a local hospital, according to Lazzaro. It is unclear if the rapper remains hospitalized.

Hernandez was arrested and sentenced to two years in prison in 2019 on nine charges, including racketeering, drug trafficking and firearm offences in relation to his involvement with the Nine Trey Bloods gang. Hernandez received a shortened prison sentence after he cooperated with federal officials to imprison his associates. He was released early due to COVID-19 concerns after a judge called the rapper a “model prisoner.”

In a video leaked on Twitter, one of Hernandez’s assailants is heard saying, “Take a picture. I’m gonna be famous now.” Another video captured a bloodied Hernandez walking out of the gym.

According to several media reports, Hernandez was ejected from a Miami baseball stadium Friday for being intoxicated and disturbing fans.
