Talented Ghanaian vocalist and genre-bending artiste Camidoh has been nominated for “Breakout Artiste of the Year” at AFRIMA 2022.
after a remarkable year of preeminence that saw him publish the noteworthy hit song “Sugarcane,” and later release a remix of the song featuring King Promise, Mayorkun, and Darkoo. He also headlined a string of concerts from across Europe, America, and the UAE.
In a keenly contested category, Camidoh will go up against a slew of highly lauded new music sensations from across the African music market, including Asake (Nigeria), Costa Titch (South Africa), Daliwonga (South Africa), El Grande Toto (Morocco), Fior 2 Bior (Ivory Coast), Hewan Gebrewold (Ethiopia), Marwan Moussa (Egypt), Nomfundo Moh (South Africa), and Phee (Nigeria).
“Sugarcane Remix” has continued to gain popularity since its initial release earlier this year. A few days, the singer released a six-track “Sugarcane Remix EP”, which features a variety of renditions of the song suitable for a region. The #SugarCaneChallenge currently has over 85 million views and 1.3 million video creations, inspiring dance challenges, and remixes from music fans worldwide.
Camidoh went on to release his first solo single of the year, “Kaba,” this summer, fueled by this wealth of knowledge. The new single finds the artist delving into modern romantic relationships and exploring love and its complexities.
