Rema, a well-known Nigerian artist, is the first recipient of the 2023 MTV Europe Music Awards’ “Best Afrobeats” category.

It should be noted that the event’s organizers added a new category called “Best Afrobeats” for the 2023 ceremony.

French superstar Aya Nakamura and Nigerian singers Asake, Ayra Starr, Burna Boy, Davido, and Rema were among the initial nominees.

The Israel-Hamas conflict forced the cancellation of the award ceremony, but the winners were still announced on November 6, 2023.

Tanzanian musician Diamond Platnumz won the title of “Best African Act,” while Rema was named the winner of “Best Afrobeats.”

Rema and Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down” did not win the “Best Collaboration” category, falling to Jung Kook and Latto’s “Seven.”

Burna Boy, the Grammy-winning Nigerian artist, missed out on three awards: “Best Afrobeats,” “Best African Act,” and “Best Live Performer.”

This happened shortly after he was stripped of all seven BET Hip-Hop Awards nominations for 2023.

Taylor Swift leads the list of 2023 MTV EMA winners, with three trophies for “Best Video,” “Best Artist,” and “Best Live.”
