Leading the pack for Nigeria is rising star Ayra Starr with three nominations. Following closely are established names Burna Boy and Tems, who each scored two nominations. Other Nigerians in the running include Asake, Seyi Vibez, Davido, and Lojay.

South Africa's Tyla stands out as the most nominated African artist overall, with a total of four nominations.

Globally, Drake reigns supreme with seven nominations, followed by Nicki Minaj with six.
