Nigerian music superstars David ‘Davido’ Adeleke and Tiwa Savage were among the leading Africans in sport and music to feature at the 2022 CAF Awards, adding glitz and glamour to the continental event.

The duo joined eminent sports personalities and dignitaries in Rabat, Morocco on Thursday night for the 2022 edition of the major African sporting event.

Austin ‘Jay-Jay’ Okocha was also among the celebrities at the awards ceremony.

While Davido, alongside Emmanuel Adebayor, presented the award for the ‘Young Female Footballer of the Year’ to Ghana’s Evelyn Badu, Okocha presented the award for ‘Goal of the Year’ to Papa Ousma Sacho of Senegal.

Tiwa Savage joined other performers to thrill guests at the awards. She performed two of her hit songs, ‘Koroba’ and ‘All Over’.

The singer was joined by Morocco’s star artiste Asmaa Lamnawar and Cote d’Ivoire supergroup Magic System.

The artistes ensured there was magic in the air as they provided the entertainment in Rabat to pay homage to the crème de la crème of African football.

The much-anticipated red carpet event at the amazing Mohammed VI Technical Centre brought together all the nominees of the 13 different categories.

Also in attendance were football royalties, including football’s leadership and CAF legends, as well as personalities from across the African continent.

The glittering show which was held in the North African nation was befitting for Africa’s football royalty and was beamed live around the world, across 44 African countries.
