Share This

Some of its winners were familiar across the continent. These include Wizkid, Fally Ipupa and Yemi Alade. Some of the others were not quite as popular. These include Uganda’s Sheebah Karungi who was named Best Female East African act and Best Newcomer winner Ykee Benda, also from Uganda.

Nasty C won the Best Male Artist South Africa category and Davido won that category’s West African equivalent. Popstar Wizkid won ‘Song of the Year’ for ‘Soco’, his hit song recorded with members of his Starboy group. The song’s video also won the Video of the Year category.

Perhaps the ceremony’s main surprise winner was Nigeria’s Burna Boy. In the past, he has commented about not winning awards. On the night of the 2018 AFRIMMA ceremony, he was named Best African Dancehall/Reggae Act.
