Sensational songwriter, singer and rapper, Divine Ikubor, known professionally as Rema, has been awarded the Best Male Act West Africa category of the ongoing AFRIMMA Awards.
The African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) Best Male Act West Africa category had nominees from Nigeria, Mali, Ghana, Senegal and Ivory Coast with Nigeria having five representatives and Ghana with two.
The nominees were Adekunle Gold, Davido, Burna Boy, Fireboy and Rema, all from Nigeria, Sidiki Diabate from Mali, Kidi and Kuami Eugene from Ghana, Ariel Sheney from Ivory Coast and Wally Seck– Senegal.
Jonzing World, a subsidiary of Mavin Records signee, Rema, has emerged the winner despite the competitive nature of the category. The Ginger Me hitmaker triumphed over Burna Boy and Davido who was known to be the two favourites to emerge the winners.
Ghana’s favorites, Kuami Eugene and Kiddi, despite releasing hit upon hits could not return home with the ultimate prize as they seek to put in hard work to wait on next year’s edition.
Presenting the virtual award, AFRIMMA said,
Congratulations to Rema for winning the 2020 Afrimma Best Male West Africa Award. #Afrimma #Afrimm
