Notably, the 35th IRAWMA was also held in South Florida in 2016 and made history as it was a record-setting celebration for its founder, Dr Martin.

Earlier, the world-famous Apolo Theatre and other venues in New York hosted IRAWMA from 2003 through 2010, and later, the 30th Anniversary of IRAWMA was celebrated in Trinidad and Tobago.

The award function will be a four-hour long function that will include many Afro artists and other renowned artists.
