Africa will be unstoppable at the 2016 All Africa Music Awards, AFRIMA, as the International Committee of AFRIMA in association with the Africa Union Commission (AUC) and the official host city, Lagos State reveals an unprecedented stellar line up.
African stars including AFRIMA 2016 nominees and multiple award-winning South African choral group, Soweto Choir have confirmed attendance at the main awards ceremony in Nigeria on Sunday, November 6, 2016.
Billed to hold at the Eko Convention Centre, Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, the main awards ceremony is preceded by the AFRIMA Music Village, a concert event at the WaterFront, Bar Beach, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. In addition to the 22-man Soweto Gospel Choir, AFRIMA 2016, tagged AFRIMA 3.0, will host over 352 African superstars during the award’s programme of events from November 4 to November 6.
Soweto Gospel Choir is unarguably the most decorated choral group in Africa, having won multiple awards including Grammy Award for Best Traditional World Music Album, “Blessed” and “African Spirit,” in 2007 and 2008 respectively. The 22-member choir ensembles blend elements of African gospel, Negro spirituals, Reggae and American Popular Music.
