Big win for Kenya as Khaligraph Jones grabs AFRIMMA Best Rap Act

It was a big win for Papa Jones.

Kenya’s popular and perhaps leading hip-hop artist Baba Yao Khaligraph Jones was honored at the 5th edition of African Music Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) 2018. The event held in Dallas Texas on Sunday 7th October celebrated the best acts from across Africa and across the diaspora. The award ceremony which took place at the House of Blues in Dallas also witnessed first-time performances from our very own gospel star Papa Dennis.

In the category of “Best Rap Act” which had ten entries including South Africa’s biggest hip-hop artists at the moment – Casper Nyovest and Nasty C- Khaligraph Jones emerged top. Taking to his Instagram page, Papa Jones expressed appreciation for the award with a simple post “…GLORY BE TO GOD. #AFRIMMA 2018 #BestRapAct..”

Papa Dennis won the Best Gospel act beating bigwigs like Willy Paul and Gloria Muliro who have dominated the gospel scene for more than five years. Other winners at the event included Uganda’s Eddy Kenzo – East African Artist of the year, Fally Ipupa for Artist of the Year (Overall).

This year, AFRIMMA added a new category – AFRIMMA Achievers Award – which included nominees from other fields of entertainment and sports. Among the big nominees recognised was Kenya’s  famed actress Lupita Nyong’o and the host of the Daily Show, Trevor Noah.
