UNITED States Zambian singer OC is among the many artistes lined up to perform at the prestigious African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) set to take place on October 15 in Dallas.
This is the third edition of the AFRIMMA which has proven to be one of the biggest African music awards in Diaspora.
The event this year will be strategically hosted by comedian Basketmouth and ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Cynthia Bailey.
Following the success of the last two editions, there are a lot of expectations for this year’s event which has packaged great entertainment and music performances from Africa’s top entertainers.
OC is very excited about this task and will be looking forward to promoting his latest single ‘‘Tie Your Wrappa” which features Nigeria’s Ilyana. The artiste has enjoyed favourable feedback following the release of the song and now OC is set to hit big stage with the track.
