The AFRIMMA Virtual Awards 2020 Nominees List Unveiled

Posted on September 16, 2020

The Countdown is on to the 7th edition of the Annual African Muzik Magazine Awards and Music Festival (AFRIMMA).

The biggest African music award ceremony in Diaspora that creates a platform to promote the diversity of African music by bringing top African talents across the world on the same stage to celebrate African music.

Every year, African music unearths new talents and the past year is no different with different stars blowing up from South Africa to Chad, Benin to Madagascar and so on.

This year’s nominees list features a raft of established talents but also stars a host of new talents in what seems to be a major paradigm shift on the African music scene.

Revered names like Burna Boy, Diamond Platnumz, Aya Nakamura, Soraia Ramos, Davido, Master KG all earned nominations while newbies like Oxlade, J Derobie, Zeynab and so on got their first AFRIMMA nominations.

This year promises to be a lot of fun and excitement with many new names propping up the list as well as musical behemoths who have maintained an unbelievable run of consistency.

The African Muzik Magazine Awards AFRIMMA has unlocked a new level with the announcement of its first Virtual Awards show.

The 7th Edition of Africa’s biggest music award in Diaspora sponsored by Majority is set to be a virtual affair due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, this is not going to stop AFRIMMA from flying the African cultural flag as we countdown to an epoch and history making event on November 15, 2020.

The AFRIMMA Virtual Awards 2020 is set to be the first of its kind in the African music world with performances coming from different artists around the world and audience catching the performances, speeches and award presentations on multiple streaming devices.

Anticipation is high and excitement is hitting the rooftop with the release of the nominees list.
