Countdown has begun for the August 1, 2018 deadline for submission of songs and videos to be nominated for the 5th annual All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA).
The biggest music event in Africa that celebrates and rewards the music talents of the continent while showcasing the African cultural heritage to a global audience for a positive narrative will close the submission for its 5th celebration.
Organised by the African Union Commission in partnership with the International Committee of AFRIMA, announced its call for entries for the 2018 edition of the awards on May 25 and thereby opened its online portal- www.afrima.org to receive songs and videos recorded or produced by African music professionals either living on the continent or in the diaspora within the eligibility period of August 1, 2017 to August 1, 2018.
Established and emerging African music stars have been sending in their songs and videos to compete in the 36 regional and continental award categories to participate in the process, with the expectation of emerging nominees that will feature at the culturally resplendent 5th AFRIMA main awards ceremony scheduled for November 2018.
The high level of participation in the submission by Africa’s music industry is an indication that the 2018 nomination entries are set to surpass those received in previous years.
