At a joint world media conference-host country unveiling held at the Hotel King Fahd Royal Palace in Dakar, Senegal on Friday, November 4, 2022, the government of Senegal accepted and agreed to host the eighth edition of the All Africa Music Awards, or AFRIMA.
The African Union Commission, The International Committee of AFRIMA, and The Republic of Senegal jointly announced that the awards ceremony will now take place from January 12 to 15, 2023, in Dakar, Senegal, moving the previous date back by four weeks.
This also means that the nominations voting deadline has been moved to January 13, 2023, at 23:00. (CAT). After previous editions, this will be the first time the major awards ceremony is hosted in a francophone nation.
