Dancegod Lloyd, a Ghanaian dancer, has announced his nomination for “Best African Dancer” at the AFRIMMA Awards in 2022.
The nomination is a huge win for the dancer, who has been going through a rough patch with his dance crew and manager. Dancegodloyd missed a huge performance by American singer and dancer Usher at the Global Citizen festival a few weeks ago.
The dancer is up against Poco Lee from Nigeria, Uncle Azeez from Nigeria, Ghetto Kids from Uganda, Angel Ngiyu from Tanzania, Hope Ramafalo from South Africa, Wet Bad Gang from Angola, Sayrahchips from Nigeria, and Manuel Kanza from Angola.
The big list of the much-anticipated Nominees List of the prestigious African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) was released by the organizers a couple of weeks ago. After a two-year period of virtual shows due to the impact of the pandemic, AFRIMMA Awards is set to return with an in-person ceremony on the 19th of November at the Gilley’s Event Center in Dallas, Texas.
Tagged “This is Africa”, the award show seeks to consolidate the growth of the previous award ceremonies and the massive growth of African music culture. It has been a great year of good music on the African music scene and many African artists did the continent proudly.
The nominee’s list was put together by the AFRIMMA technical team after painstaking research and due diligence. Gen Z stars hug the headlines of this year’s nomination list with Gen Z stars like Asake, Ayra Star, Jay Melody, Mario, Rema, Black Sheriff, Ruger, Buju, and more holding their own against heavyweights like Burna Boy, Diamond Platnumz, Focalistic and the rest.
Stars like Ammarae, Mahkhadzi, Gambo, and DJ Snake all earned their first AFRIMMA nominations on a list that is practically tight in every category. Celebrating African music and African music artists has been the fuel behind AFRIMMA Awards, and the body has consistently uplifted African music on the world stage since its inception. It is set to be another chapter in history as African stars hoist their country’s flags in different categories of nominations.
