Chaka Chaka, dubbed Princess of Africa, won the 5th Afrima legendary award. She has has a career spanning over 30 years with several hit albums.

Ambode was awarded a special recognition for his contributions towards the growth and development of the Arts and Tourism sector of Lagos state, most importantly the role Lagos state played as official host of AFRIMA in its last 4 years from 2014 – 2017.
