Alex Brown has been on the music scene for a few years and is currently working on his own music. Based in the United States, the star attributes his style of music to his father who he says taught him how to play Afro pop music.

I used to play a lot of rock music, but before my father passed on, he afforded me the wonderful gift of fusing afro pop with all the urban elements I had already acquired and I will forever be grateful to him for that

The awards campaign kicked off in January, and over 80 nominees across a reshuffled 18 category list were announced at a press conference in March. Voting closed on the 23rd of April and the panel are currently whittling down the shortlist to emerge with the 2017 winners.
