When the organizing body for AFRIMMA announced the theme of the 7th edition as ‘Destination Africa’, not many realized this was about to be the journey of a lifetime. History was made as the first African music awards to be held virtually aired on AFRIMMA YouTube page. It was a fun experience, a musical journey into the different parts of Africa hosted by WFAA’s Tashara Parker.

Proudly sponsored by Majority official, the AFRIMMA private jet took off in Dallas, Texas the spiritual home of the AFRIMMA awards, touching down in West Africa, East Africa, Central Africa and Southern Africa. The performances were exuberant and colorful and left viewers yearning for more. Nigeria’s new school King Rema gave an eclectic performance, Cape Verdean Soraia Ramos was an example in sonic beauty, while veteran Fally Ipupa showed why he is evergreen in African music. Some of the performers on the night include dance king Poco Lee, Congo’s Gaz Mawete, the Ugandan star Eddy Kenzo, South Africa’s rap queen Nadia Nakai and man of the moment Master KG.
