The singer was nominated for Outstanding Male Artist, Outstanding International Song, Outstanding Hip-Hop/Rap Song, Outstanding Album, and Outstanding Duo, Group, or Collaboration (Contemporary) categories.

However, they were won by Chris Brown, Tems, Mega Thee Stallion, Victoria Mondi, and Chris Brown featuring Davido and Lojay (Sensational) respectively.

Davido was nominated for Outstanding Male Artist and Outstanding International Song (for Unavailable), which he lost. Tems equally lost the Outstanding Female Artist category.

Meanwhile, Asake lost in the International Song category for Amapiano featuring Olamide.

The Outstanding Music Video/Video Album was won by Sensational by Chris Brown feat. Davido and Lojay. Some fans of Wizkid said Burna Boy didn’t win any award because the award organisers did not regard Afrobeats’ music. That was why the ‘Joro’ singer said he should not be described as an Afrobeats singer recently.
