The awards was instituted to recognize and celebrate the essence of the African DJs. Although earlier scheduled to come off at the Sandton Convention Center, Johannesburg, South Africa organizers in a tweet said:
We regret to announce the postponement of #AGDAAWARDS which was slated to hold on Sat. 4th May @SandtonConventionCenter in S.A.
It is yet unknown what necessitated the postponement but organizers say they are yet to agree on a new date for the awards.
