“The Senegalese government has accepted and is committed to hosting the eighth edition of AFRIMA.

AFRIMA Committee

“The award ceremony will now take place from January 12 to 15, 2023 in Dakar, Senegal; moving the previous date as announced jointly by the AFRIMA Committee, the AUC and the Republic of Senegal.

“This also means that the voting deadline for nominees will now be moved to January 13, 2023 at 23:00 (CAT).

“This will be the first time that the main award ceremony will be held in a French-speaking country after previous editions,” he said.

Angela Martins

Angela Martins, Head of the Division of Culture, Social Affairs of the AUC, said that the African Union was excited that the awards would be held in a francophone region.

“The AUC has been a strong partner and collaborator of the prestigious awards since its first edition in 2014.

“AFRIMA has grown to become the only continental platform that aims to promote and spread the musical works and immeasurable talent of African musicians of young and older generations.

Action Plan

“This prestigious platform gives expression to and supports the implementation of the AU’s policy instruments in the creative economy, including the AU Action Plan on Cultural and Creative Industries.

Government of Senegal

“Allow me to join the international committee of AFRIMA in expressing gratitude and appreciation to the Government of Senegal for agreeing to host the 8th edition of AFRIMA from January 12-15, 2023.

“And for making history, the third AU member state to host the awards,” he said.

President of the African Union

He noted that Senegal’s AFRIMA headquarters would occur at a time when Senegal would still be the President of the African Union.

Martins said it was a timely occasion to close out his presidency rich in arts, culture and heritage.

“Senegal is known for its huge investment in the arts, culture and heritage.

“Holding the AFRIMA meeting is therefore a step in the right direction to bring the beautiful city of Dakar back on the map as one of the music capitals in Africa and around the world,” he said. .

Minister of Tourism and Air Transport of Senegal

In his acceptance speech, the Minister of Tourism and Air Transport of Senegal, Mr. Alioune Sarr, said: “Now Sénégal is also positioning itself to become a champion of music because we are organizing the eighth AFRIMA.

“We are happy to know that Senegal becomes the third country and the first French-speaking country to host this great event.

“I can tell you that our ministry (tourism) and the government of Senegal will partner and collaborate with you (AFRIMA) to make AFRIMA a great success in Senegal.

Macky Sall

“This is because our president, Macky Sall, is not only the president of the African Union, but also wants to position himself as the president of all African lovers of culture that AFRIMA emanates,” he said.

Minister of Culture and Communication of Senegal

The Minister of Culture and Communication of Senegal, Aliou Sow, said: “I am honored to represent the Minister of Culture, together with my colleague in this preparatory event for the eighth edition of the AFRIMA Awards in Senegal.

“We are honored to welcome this great event in this country for the benefit of the youth of Senegal and the image of the country.

AFRIMA in Senegal

“The eighth AFRIMA in Senegal is officially labeled as the Teranga edition, which embraces the good hospitality, warmth, generosity and sharing that are fundamental to Senegalese life,” he said.

Also Mike Dada

Also Mike Dada, president and executive producer of AFRIMA, said that the values ​​of the Senegalese people would be celebrated globally through the AFRIMA platform.

Dada said that young people, the central focus of the eighth edition, would be exposed to opportunities in the creative economy and new music business models, monetization in music, intellectual property rights and licensing.

AFRIMA in Dakar

“They will also be exposed to collaborations with other world superstars of African music who will participate in the eighth edition of AFRIMA in Dakar,” he said.

Matar Diop

Matar Diop, Country Director of AFRIMA in Senegal, said: “I am excited that the International Committee of AFRIMA and the African Union have heard our plea and presentation to bring AFRIMA to Senegal for the benefit of the tourism and music industry in Senegal. .

President and Government of the Republic of Senegal

“I thank the President and Government of the Republic of Senegal for supporting this project that will change the creative industry and tourism landscape of Senegal forever.”
