All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) 2017 Winners List

It was a big night for at least seven Nigerian musicians as they clinched top awards at the 2017 edition of the All Africa Music Awards held on Sunday at the EKO Hotel & Suites, Lagos.
.Star Boy, Wizkid, was the biggest winner at the event.

The pop star clinched three major awards: Best West African Artiste award, The Song of the Year and the Artiste of the year, trumping the likes of Davido, Runtown, Tekno and others…

Wizkid’s win came shortly after Davido edged him out at the 2017 MTV EMA by winning the “Best African Act”.

Wizkid’s big win has once again renewed his long-standing battle for supremacy with Davido.

In his acceptance speech, the Ojuelegba crooner thanked 2baba and DJ Jimmy Jatt for their contributions to the African music landscape.

Nigerian acts Simi, M.I, Tiwa Savage, Ycee, Orezi, 2Baba all bagged awards.

Meanwhile, midway through her energetic performance at the award ceremony, singer, Seyi Shay, lost her balance, slipped and fell.

The singer picked herself up almost immediately and continued performing her hit song, Yolo Yolo.

She later recalled the incident by saying “the devil is a liar”. Her fall is currently a subject of discourse on social media.
