The Nominees list was unveiled recently by the African Union and the 13-man Jury of the All Africa Music Awards, AFRIMA.

Describing the nominations process as careful and thorough, Mr. Strano described the Jury’s resolve as fair and transparent.

“The Jury is very careful about being accurate right from the process of verifying eligibility of entries to the process collating and finalising results. It is an evolving process but one we work painstakingly at to ensure transparency and fairness” Strano explained.

Speaking further Mike Strano who is the Regional Director, Eastern Africa/Co-Producer, AFRIMA said, “there are 34 categories of the award but only 10 are released today August 22, which are the Regional Categories. A new category introduced this year is the “People’s Choice Award” which comes out from a healthy debate by the International Committee of AFRIMA and the Jury.”

The Best Female Artistes and Best Male Artistes of the five regions have been released while the nominees in the continental categories will follow suit seven days after.

Describing the jurors’ experience as rewarding, the Head, Culture Division, African Union Commission, AUC, Mrs. Angela Martins, reiterated the AU and AFRIMA’s objectives of unity among African artistes and the need for continental integration while celebrating its rich music and heritage.
