Nigerian music stars are arguably the best in Africa. Their successes at international awards, either as nominees or winners, prove this. The organizers of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) have announced the nominees for this year’s award and as expected Nigerian acts are leading the top categories.
This year, the second edition of the continental music awards, showed the Nigerians’ dominance over their colleagues in other parts of the continent, with nominations in categories such as Album of The Year, Song of The Year and Artiste of the Year. These three categories are the only ones that cover acts from every part of the continent, other categories are regional.
Wizkid, Yemi Alade and Flavour were nominated in all three general categories as well as regional categories. While Olamide, Davido, P-Square and Brymo were among the artistes with the highest nominations.
