… Namibian scoops coveted AFRIMA 2017 category
By Jeoffrey Mukubi
MUSIC lovers across the continent have united to hand the coveted title of African Fans’ Favourite at the 2017 the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) to Namibian superstar, The Dogg.
The Namibian kwaito star was up against, DARASSA (Tanzania), Donald (South Africa), Ebony (Ghana), Nyanshiki (Kenya), Kandia Kora (Guinea), Nonso Amadi (Nigeria), Olamide (Nigeria) and Young Paris (Democratic Republic of Congo) at last’s Sunday’s award show, held in Lagos, Nigeria.
The Africa Fans’ Favourite category gave Africans the chance to vote for their favourite African artist, and The Dogg had all the odds stacked against him, taking into consideration the large population sizes of the countries his competitors come from.
Despite this, he walked away with the coveted award. Michael Pulse and Sally ‘Boss Madam’ were also nominated, for Best Male Southern African Artist and Best Female African Artist, respectively, but unfortunately they did not win.
