Both acts have been nominated in the Best Male, Song of the Year, Best Live, Best Collaboration, Best Artist and Album of the Year categories at the awards which will be held at the BK Arena in Kigali, Rwanda on October 21.
Other big names on the continent who could be in Kigali for the awards include Ayra Star, Asake, Rema, Musa Keys and many more.
According to Olivier Laouchez, chairman and co-founder of Trace, most of the artistes nominated for the Trace Awards are expected to attend and perform during the show that will take place in Kigali.
“The Trace Awards nominations celebrate the achievements and excellence of more than 150 performers, producers, DJs, writers, composers, directors, established artists and rising stars, as well as their management and labels. We congratulate all the nominees, most of whom will be attending and performing in Kigali on 21 October. It will be an unmissable experience for lovers of African and Afro-inspired music,” Laouchez said in a statement released by Trace on Monday, August 21.
It will be Burna Boy’s second time in Rwanda, following his 2019 Burna Boy Xperience concert, which took place at the Intare Conference Arena on March 23.
