AFRIMA JURY

***As Conakry hosts African Union stakeholders’ meeting

***Conakry also like to host the award-Music Pundits

The withdrawal of the hosting right of the sixth edition of Africa’s biggest music award AFRIMA from Ghana has left questions about who will host the fiesta this year.

Recently, the International Committee of the All Africa Music Awards, (AFRIMA) announced the withdrawal of Ghana’s hosting right explaining that the decision was taken due to the country’s inability to meet up with  financial and contractual obligations.

Since the announcement, music pundits  have been analysing the likely host nation.

Nigeria being the originating country of the award has been touted as the supposed host with a 9.0 vote. However, Guinea has been credited by music pundits as the most likely country to host the award with a vote of 9.5.

Recall that officials of the African Union Commission (AUC) and members of the International Committee of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) were hosted by the government and people of the Republic of Guinea during the African Union Stakeholders’ meeting which held between Thursday, June 13 and Saturday, June 15, 2019 in Conakry.

During the visit, Monsieur Fodeba Isto Keira, the Secretary General/Permanent Secretary who spoke on behalf  of the ministry express happiness that the AU and AFRIMA visited the Republic of Guinea for the purpose of entrenching the values and opportunities in the culture and creative industry in Africa. He pledged the support of the government and people of Republic of Guinea to the AFRIMA initiative.

Stakeholders of the award also propagated the idea and objectives of AFRIMA in line with the AU Agenda 2063, Charter for African Cultural Renaissance and the Plan of Action on Cultural and Creative Industries.

Though the idea for the meeting was to  get the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance ratified among Pan African countries, alongside promoting the AFRIMA objectives and its programme of events for the 6th edition which commenced on May 10, 2019 and culminates in the main events in November, speculations are that Guinea might just be the destination of the award.
