    i dont get this event, i thought they already held the event in october, in the us, the list of winners have also been out way before this month…is there like a double event for one event ?? ..like too much money or something make you host 1 event in two countries or was the houston one just something else…just wondering.

      There is only (1) AFRIMA (AllAfricanMusicAwards), but another body is copying the name they called themselves AFRIMMA (Africa Music Magazine) which they held back in Oct @ Texaz in USA,if its African event while hosting it in the western world?…….AFRIMA is Africa event and which will be hosted in every African country,as Nigeria won the right to host the event for the next 3 years(2014,15,16)…..kindly follow on all social media platforms visit the website (www.afrima.org) for clearifications…thanks

    Victoria kimani is always trying so hard to look ‘sexy’ ? That wig looks ridiculous and rough and the dress looks tacky. Get a stylist next time

      My dear almost all African female artists are trying so hard to be Beyoncé….opening of chest today and enhancing of yansh tomorrow yet you’re still far from being the queen. Big respect to yemi Alade and letoya delazy for staying true to themselves and daring to be different. Not forgetting my big sis OMAWUNMI nne carry go

    @Word. The awards are different but the names are similar. This is with single letter M. Yes the awards need distinct names and branding. Anyway , , Congrats to Adekunle Gold and Dare Art Alade. Dare was unfairly ignored for nomination for 2015 Headies.

    Sorry not hating oo….but first of all…there’s nothing like African hiphop, secondly there’s nothing like African electro….thirdly, It’s afropop and Vanessa Mdee is not classified as a winner in my opinion. Give davido or uhuru that award joor…I still love u Vanessa. ATLAST AN AFRICAN AWARDS EVENT BASED ON AFRICAN ARTISTS NOT JUST NIGERIANS. #naijaismyhome#butthehypingatalmostalltheawardsdontoomuchabeg#africaisacontinentnotacountry

    Diamond Platnumz is arguably one of the best dressed artists on the African continent.
