This Year's Theme

This year, we’re rallying under the banner “King of The Game,” a theme that’s the celebration of the spirit that drives African audio creatives.

“King of The Game” is an homage to the journey—our collective stride towards excellence and innovation. We are about mastering our craft, pushing boundaries, and setting new standards.

This theme is a recognition of the hard work, the late nights, the endless edits, and the courage to tell stories that matter.
As we come together under this theme, we aim to spotlight the trailblazers who’ve led the way, the innovators who are redefining what’s possible, and the emerging talents that are the future of our industry.

Every nominee, every participant, embodies the essence of “King of The Game”—demonstrating resilience in the face of challenges, creativity in storytelling, and leadership that inspires a new generation.

This year, let’s embrace “King of The Game”, let it reflect our commitment to excellence, our celebration of creativity, and our affirmation that, indeed, every voice has the power to shape our world.

We had so much this past weekend celebrating excellence in the African Audio industry. First, congratulations to all the winners of the @apva_official Awards. This is an outstanding achievement and you must be so proud! We want to give a special round of applause to the incredible APVA team for orchestrating not just a flawless live experience but also for the in-person watch parties across 5 different countries! This was no small feat, but you made it happen, turning this into the largest simultaneous podcasting event across the continent! We are beyond honoured to have been the headline sponsors for this year's awards and to have played a part in the celebrations and the entire awards journey. We were also able to attend the watch party in Nairobi and had a lot of fun with the podcast community that was in attendance. Thank you to @barazamedialab for being gracious hosts. Once again, congratulations to all the winners and nominees.

I think it's amazing that APVA allows us to have that extra Accolade, but from our peers, and I think that it means so much more than coming from that group of people.
