The 2017 edition of All African Music Awards held on Sunday night at the Eko Convention Centre. Expectedly it was a great outing for Nigerian artistes who dominated the winners’ lists- carting away a total of nine.

Three of those awards were bagged by Nigeria’s very own Starboy, Wizkid. ‘Baba Nla’ went home with the awards for Song of the Year, Artiste of the Year and Best West African Artiste awards.

Here’s the full list of winners.
