At the 2024 iHeart Radio Music Awards, Burna Boy and Rema triumph.


Superstars of Nigerian Afrobeats Burna Boy and Rema took home awards at the 2024 iHeart Radio Music Awards in their respective categories.

With his victory in the Best African Music Artist category, Burna Boy put an end to his dismal performance at award shows. However, Rema and Selena Gomez’s song “Calm Down” took home the Best Collaboration of the Year award.

Rapper Ludacris presented the live 2024 iHeart Radio Music Awards on FOX on Monday night.

The iHeart Icon Award went to Cher, and the iHeart Innovator Award went to American musical sensation Beyoncé.

With six prizes, including Artist of the Year, Pop Artist of the Year, Tour of the Year, Best Lyrics, TikTok Bop of the Year, and Favorite Tour Style, Taylor Swift topped the winners’ leaderboard.

Wizkid and Tems are the only other Nigerian musicians with iHeart Radio Music awards, along with Burna Boy and Rema.

Burna Boy had a losing run when it came to award ceremonies; he was not included in seven BET Hip-hop Awards nominations in 2023, four Grammy nominations in 2024, or six NAACP Image Awards nominations in 2024.

He was unsuccessful in winning Best International Artist of the Year at the 2024 Brit Awards on the other side of the Atlantic.
