This annual celebration of African and international talent and achievement recognises and rewards musicians and achievers who have made the most impact on African music and youth culture over the previous year.

African talent will be celebrated and rewarded across 18 award categories, including Best Male, Best Female, Listener’s Choice and Best Group.

And it seems that ‘Best Dressed’ might as well be added to the categories as the African glitterati have really brought their A-game when it comes to the red carpet.

Here are some of the best looks tonight:
