AFRIMA: Lagos May Not Hold The 2018 Edition
For the past four editions Lagos has hosted the whole of Africa, but this year might just be different.
Even after hosting 8 judges who had just 3 days to select the nominees and winners from the 8,009 songs/videos received for the All Africa Music Awards, AFRIMA, there is still no guarantee for Nigeria’s commercial city.
For the first time Lagos has received competition from Accra, Ghana's capital city and Malabo in Equatorial Guinea.
Accra is strong competition after hosting the calendar unveiling ceremony for the musical showpiece. At the occasion in Ghana, the schedule of events of AFRIMA 2018 was first revealed to the public.
The organisers will on September 1, announce the date for the event and the host country responsible for deciding how the 23.9 carat gold-plated AFRIMA trophy will be given to winners in 38 different regional and continental categories.
The award for its 5th edition reflects the creative energy and output of African music talents between the review period of August 1, 2017 to August 1, 2018.
Which city would you love to see host this year’s award?
