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.

Here are some of the best looks tonight:
