Following the recent unveiling of calendar of activities for this year’s edition of All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) in Accra, Ghana, submission of entry for the continental music awards opened on Friday, May 25 in commemoration of Africa Day.
Henceforth AFRIMA will be receiving on its online portal www.afrima.org works, songs and videos recorded or produced by African music professionals and publicly released within the eligibility period of August 1, 2017 to August 1, 2018.
The entries will compete for possible nomination by the AFRIMA jury in one or more of the
36 categories of the awards. The 13-member jury, with vast experience in African music and culture, is charged with overseeing the AFRIMA adjudication process to ensure a thorough and fair screening.
The nominees are to populate the regional and continental awarding categories of AFRIMA in different genres of music, ranging from African contemporary to electro, traditional, reggae/ragga/dancehall, hip-hop, R&B, rap and rock.
