Similarly, the African Union Commission (AUC) & All Africa Music Award were proud to present the Nominees to the Biggest Afrima Awards 2017. One of the members of Afrima from Cameroon named “Ekukole,” said that; Afrima Awards 2017 Nominees are thoroughly vetted before picking up. In like manner, he said that; the nominees were picked based on production quality, talent and creativity, melody, originality and authenticity, composition and arrangement.

As a matter of fact, it has to do with the quality of music not on the number of views from any online video platform. Some songs from certain regions have more than half a billion views and would have garnered the awards based on such sentiment, but it is not so. It has to do with quality, he emphasized.
