The 2021 edition which happens to be the 39th IRAWMA saw the likes of Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, DJ Switch, and Kwame Yeboah walk home smiling.
Shatta Wale won the ‘Virtual Entertainer of The Year’ award. He won ahead of Beenie Man, Buju Banton, and others.
Sarkodie also took home the ‘Best Virtual Showcase/Concert of The Year’ with his Black over Concert even ahead of the popular Reggae Sunfest.
Young disc jockey, DJ Switch, was named the ‘Best Young Entertainer of The Year’ while Kwame Yeboah emerged as the ‘Instrumentalist of The Year’.
Unfortunately, Stonebwoy lost his shot at bagging the Best African Reggae Artist of The year award.
