The 2023 VMA Nominations Include Rema, Davido, Burna Boy, Wizkid, And Ayra Starr

The announcement of the inclusion of an Afrobeats category in the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) is a ground-breaking development. Due to the enormous talent found in the Afrobeats genre and the widespread appeal of African music, this exciting development has been unveiled.

This category has already received nominations for a number of top Afrobeats performers. Wizkid, who is renowned for his dynamic sound and cross-cultural collaborations, Davido, whose exuberant performances have made him a household name, Rema, the rising star whose avant-garde approach to music has garnered him a massive following, and Burna Boy, whose fusion of Afro-fusion and dancehall has garnered him critical acclaim are just a few examples.

The complete list of nominees for the MTV VMAs 2023 has been revealed in advance of the forthcoming MTV Video Music Awards. The nominees for this year reflect a striking rise in femme power, with female and non-binary artists receiving the most deserving accolades. It’s none other than Taylor Swift who is leading the charge.

SZA follows closely behind, earning the second-most nominations with an incredible six nods for her outstanding work, particularly on the songs “Kill Bill” and “Shirt” from her sophomore album SOS. Doja Cat, Kim Petras, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Olivia Rodrigo, and Sam Smith are in close second place with an equal number of five nominations apiece.
