While everyone who is anyone in the African music industry was probably nervous about how the ceremony would go and if they would make it out with an award or two at this year’s AFRIMA (All Africa Music Awards), we were just as nervous, or excited rather, to see what the red carpet had in store for us.

Hosted in Ghana this year, with a range of annual awards segmenting and finding the creme of the crop in each region of Africa, it was no surprise that the most coveted title of all, Best Artist Of The Year, was scooped up by Tiwa Savage for the Female category and Davido for the males-He has been winning quite a lot lately, including in the love department.

And while we are sure you are also eager to find out who else left the event very happy, we know you are truly here for the fashion. AO in true GA style, here’s the list of winners below, and even more importantly, browse through our gallery and let us know who rocked the carpet, who looked the most GLAM and who should have stayed at home!
