The third edition of Africa’s prestigious award ceremony went down last night in Dallas. It was hosted by Nigeria’s finest comedian – “BasketMouth” and co-hosted by Actress (Real Housewives of Atlanta) – “Cynthia Bailey”.

Singer Akothee now officially has bragging rights. She just won the AFRIMMA for Best Female Artist for East Africa.

Just a few weeks ago, she was trolled by her fans for asking them to vote right after insulting them for criticizing one of her outfits. Well it seems her fans voted like crazy. She even beat the likes of Vanessa Mdee and Victoria Kimani.

Congratulations to the controversial singer. Check out photos from the event below.
