Nigerian afrobeat stars, Burna Boy and Rema won the inaugural Afrobeats categories at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards held on Sunday, 19th of November.

Burna Boy won the Top Afrobeats Artiste, while Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ remix featuring Selena Gomez snagged the gong for the Top Afrobeats Song.

Similarly, Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ remix saw off competition from Ayra Starr’s ‘Rush’, Oxlade’s ‘Ku Lo Sa’, Libianca’s ‘People’, and Victony’s ‘Soweto’ with Rema and Don Toliver, to take home the price for the maiden Top Afrobeats Song category.

However, ‘Calm Down’ remix lost in the Top Billboard Collaboration, Top Billboard Excl. U.S. Song, Top Billboard Global 200 Song, and Top Radio Song categories.

American singer, Morgan Wallen, led the winners’ chart with a total of 11 awards, while Taylor Swift followed closely with 10 wins.
