The 2022 edition of the American Music Awards (AMAs) is set to take place on the 21st of November and the nominations are out. One of the highlights of this year’s edition is the dedication of a new category to the metastasizing Afrobeats genre.

The Favorite Afrobeats Artist category is one of the new categories that has been added to the American Music Awards for the first time ever and the nominated artists in this category are Burna Boy, Wizkid, CKay, Tems, and Fireboy DML.

Tems is the most nominated Afrobeats artist with a total of four nominations, she was nominated for Favorite R&B Song for “Essence,” Collaboration of The Year and Rap Song of The Year for Future’s “Wait For U,” and Afrobeats Artist of The Year. Wizkid earned two nominations for Favorite R&B Song and Favourite R&B Artist. Burna Boy, CKay and Fireboy DML got one nomination each.

Come November 20th, the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles will host the American Music Awards of 2022. Except for Favorite K-pop Artist, which will open on Tuesday, November 1, voting for every other category is currently open.
