Two Lions in the den, Alien Skin and Bobi Wine are missing out on the freshest AFRIMMA Nominee list and yes, this cannot go unnoticed.
The prestigious African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) has unveiled the nominees for its highly anticipated 2023 edition, and Ugandan talents are standing out prominently on the list, except Bobi Wine and Alien Skin, who have not only dominated the internet space but also dropped some great projects.
One would highlight the fact that Bobi has this year had an outstanding hit, ‘Labisa’ Ft. Ffefe, Zex Nubian and Sizzaman, and Alien Skin with mega jams such as Party, Tulabise, Sitya Danger, Twayiseko Dda and many others but AFRIMMA doesn’t rate them, not even Vinka, who has ‘Bailando’, arguably the biggest song in the country.
Emerging artist Joshua Baraka has emerged as a standout nominee from Uganda, securing three nominations. His Nana remix, a collaboration with Joeboy, King Promise, and Bien, has earned recognition in three categories: Song of the Year, Best Collaboration, and Video of the Year.
Other nominees from Uganda include; Eddy Kenzo finds himself in the running for Best Male Artist in East Africa while Azawi and Spice Diana stand tall as a nominee for Female Artist in East Africa.
The realm of dance is also well represented, with Triplets Ghetto Kids and Masaka Dance Kids competing in the Best African Dancer category. Additionally, Producer 207 earns a nod for Producer of the Year, showcasing the diverse talent within the Ugandan music scene.
This year, the AFRIMMA Awards are commemorating their 10th Anniversary. Over the past decade, AFRIMMA has consistently celebrated African music and recognized the extraordinary talent flourishing both within the continent and the diaspora.
The 10th AFRIMMA Awards anniversary promise to be a celebration of the immense creativity, diversity, and passion that define African music.
