UPDATE: Afro Bros wins prestigious ASCAP Latin Music Award + #1 Buma Award International
Mar 12, 2019
Following last week's win at the ASCAP Latin Music Award in Puerto Rico, Dutch DJ/producer act Afro Bros has now also won the renowned Dutch Buma Award International for their production work of Nicky Jam & J Balvin's global hit 'X'. "This is incredible! We're so proud, thanks to our team and everyone who supports us for reaching this very special milestone", say the Afro Bros in a first response.
Hailing from the Dutch city of Arnhem, the Afro Bros are exclusively signed on Spinnin' Records, where they've already scored millions of streams with hit singles '18+' and 'So Much Love'. Meanwhile, the guys are also an in-demand productional team, working with acts like Major Lazer, J Balvin and Dutch acts like Boef, Supergaande and Ronnie Flex (with whom they won two Buma Awards last year).
2018 saw them hit worldwide success together with Nicky Jam and J Balvin, with whom they produced 'X'. Within a few days upon release the music video already scored 50 million YouTube views, by now it counts a staggering 1,5 billion views!
After being nominated for a Latin Grammy Award late 2018, the guys also received a nomination for the prestigious ASCAP Latin Music Awards, which they gloriously won! Don't forget to congratulate them!
