AFRIMA 2018: Davido Wins Big Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, Sarkodie. See Full List Of Winners

The 2018 edition of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) was successfully climaxed at the Accra International Conference Center with an awards ceremony.

Saturday’s awards ceremony followed three days of various activities in Ghana’s capital including a free concert on Thursday night at the Independence Square.

Some Ghanaian stars picked up some awards, although a majority of the honours went outside the country with Nigeria’s Davido emerging as the AFRIMA’s artiste of the year 2018.

The Ghanaian winners of the night included Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, M.anifest, Shatta Wale and the Lynx duo Kidi and Kuami Eugene. Legendary Osibisa were also presented with a special award.

Interestingly, Stonebwoy beat his rival, Shatta Wale, to emerge as the Best Reggae/Dancehall act just like it happened at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards in April.

Another interesting thing is that our very own Patapaa won an award. His ‘Akwaaba’ collaboration with Guilty Beatz, Mr Eazi and Pappy Kojo was adjudged the song of the year.

Currently in its fifth year, AFRIMA which honours the best in music on the continent has always been held in Nigeria except for this one.
