Burna Boy and Rema emerged as winners in the inaugural Afrobeats categories at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards, held on Sunday, November 19.

Burna Boy secured the title of Top Afrobeats Artiste, making history as the first-ever winner of this newly-created category. He faced tough competition from Wizkid, Rema, Tems, and Cameroonian star Libianca.

Rema's 'Calm Down' remix featuring Selena Gomez clinched the award for the Top Afrobeats Song. The track triumphed over other notable Afrobeats hits such as Ayra Starr’s ‘Rush,’ Oxlade’s ‘Ku Lo Sa,’ Libianca’s ‘People,’ and Victony’s ‘Soweto’ with Rema and Don Toliver.

Despite this success, 'Calm Down' remix didn't secure victories in other categories it was nominated for, including Top Billboard Collaboration, Top Billboard Excl. U.S. Song, Top Billboard Global 200 Song, and Top Radio Song.

In terms of overall wins, American singer Morgan Wallen led with a total of 11 awards, closely followed by Taylor Swift with 10 wins. The recognition at the Billboard Music Awards further highlights the global impact and recognition of Afrobeats on the international music scene.
