Dj Lito garnered more votes than the other nominees in this category according to a representative from a worldwide known auditing company, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) which was responsible for examining the voting system used by AFRIMA to select winners.

Accompanied by his manager Nyshar Bridgette on stage he said, “I want to thank my fellow Ugandans for the overwhelming support and votes”.

This acceptance speech was accompanied by a post on social media which had the caption “Alhamdulillah, Allah did” (Thank you, God).

The awarding ceremony also featured performances from Nigerian global music superstars P-Square as well as singers Tiwa Savage, Eltee Skhillz, Pheelz, Fave, and Asake.

Also known as the ‘Turntable supreme’, DJ Lito real name Shafiq Ssekitoleko, is a Ugandan disc jockey, record producer, and media personality born on 19.09.1996.
