Remarkably, Nigerians secured roughly the entire nominees for the category with the likes of Wizkid, Runtown, Mr Eazi and Tekno, all nominated alongside Ugandan Eddy Kenzo.

Mr Eazi and Runtown also got nominated for best collaborations of the year and best music video while Nathaniel Bassey got nominated for Gospel Song of the Year for his feature with Jeshrun Okyere in ‘Healing Stream’.
