South Africa is booming in the music industry, with quite a few artists who have been nominated at the 6th annual Africa Music Magazine Awards (Afrimma) 2019.
According to SA Hip Hop magazine, the awards ceremony is set to take place in Dallas, Texas on 26 and 27 October. The awards are centred around promoting the diversity of African music by allowing influential artists from different countries to celebrate their efforts in illuminating the entertainment industry.
There’s no surprise who they chose from South Africa as part of the Best Rap Act. Both Nasty C and Cassper Nyovest have huge followings and have done pretty major things in the entertainment industry.
The organisers of the event released the nominations of the events for all categories. The most-nominated acts are Diamond Platnumz with 6 nominations, followed closely by Davido, Whizkid and Fally Ipupa.
Mzansi’s Nasty C and Cassper Nyovest go up against Phyno of Nigeria, Olamide of Nigeria, Falz of Nigeria, Sarkodie of Ghana, Tha Dogg of Namibia, Zlatan Ibile of Nigeria, Khaligraph Jones of Kenya and Medikal of Ghana.
