The African Music Award AFRIMA went down last night at the Eko Hotel and Suite Lagos State.
Present at the event was the Min. For Information and Culture, Alh. Lai Mohammad.
The event was almost marred owing to the absence of many Nigerian big stars who won awards but were not available to receive them, their managers and representatives did so on their behalf.
However, unlike Nigerians stars, big stars from other parts of Africa made them self available.
Grammy Award nominee, Burna Boy won African Artiste of the year and Best Male Artiste of the year, Wizkid’s song ‘Fever’ won Best Song of The year, while Tiwa Savage won Best Female African Artiste of the year but none of the trio were available to receive their awards personally.
Below are some of the winners
Best Male Artist in Eastern Africa was won by Khaligraph Jones
