remembers that a new category named “Best Afrobeats” was added by the organizers for the 2023 competition.

Aya Nakamura, the French celebrity, and the Nigerian singers Asake, Ayra Starr, Burna Boy, Davido, and Rema were the pioneer nominees.

The Israel-Hamas conflict forced the cancellation of the award event, but the winners were still announced on Sunday, November 6, 2023 by the organizers.

Diamond Platnumz of Tanzania earned the title of “Best African Act,” and Rema was declared the winner of the “Best Afrobeats” category.

But Jung Kook and Latto’s “Seven” defeated Rema and Selena Gomez in the “Best Collaboration” category.
