Afrique Entertainment Awards powered by mazifeanyidotcom has come and gone but the memories will linger on for decades. This is laying the foundations for bigger and greater things to happen in the future. The glamorous event took place downtown Indianapolis at the prestigious Michael’s Soul Kitchen and we had a lot of high profile celebrities in attendance.
Teeklef who was nominated in 5 categories led the winners on the night, bagging three awards for himself, while Afrorolls and DJ Marco went home with two awards each. Mr. Fiesta went home with the best Media personality of the year 2019.
Highlights of the event include performances from T Music, Afrorolls, and the hosts TME Singsong and Kambria Moncrief.
Contrary to many opinions, Organizers of the event say that this is the most fairly conducted awards, as winners of the awards were determined purely by the votes they gathered from their fan base. “It is important that artists are able to draw the power of their fan base at any point in time because that is the measure of your brand and that is how you are able to stay relevant”. This edition is a foundation for what will come in 2021. Next year’s edition will be bigger and better as they are looking to add more categories and have more sponsors.
