The event which is scheduled to take place at the Dallas Bomb Factory, TX on 26th and 27th of October 2019 will have names like Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Diana Hamilton, Bethel Revival Choir (BRC), Becca, MzVee, R2Bees, Stormzy, Sarkodie, Kwesi Arthur, Medikal, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale as well as other music and media related acts such as DJ Slim, David Duncan, Gyo Gyimah, Sammy Forson and Guilty Beatz compete amongst other equally good talents across the African continent.

This would be the first ever nominations at this years’ AFRIMMA for the ‘Mo Ne Yo’ hitmaker and the BRC who are known for traditional songs like ‘Vovome’, ‘Akpe’ and ‘Agbadza’ medley.

They are expected to win big over ‘Excess Love’ singer Mercy Chinwo, Nigeria’s Frank Edwards, Kenya’s Papa Dennis and others.

Another iconic highlight about this year’s categorical nominations is how two of Ghana’s favorite rappers, Medikal and Sarkodie, were pitched in the same category of Best Rap Act.

Medikal, who had recently been trolled by Ghanaians on social media over claims he made as the sole savior of Ghana’s Rap game, leading to a beef with Strongman in defence of his role model, Sarkodie, now has a level playing ground to prove his claim if he wins in that category.
