The two were nominated after a rigorous selection process by the organizers who had to travel across the continent to pick the most-listened-to DJs from a tall list.
DJ Black of Joy FM is the other Ghanaian DJ on the list, making Ghana stand tall with the highest number of winners on the show.

Sammy Forson hosts the Myd-Morning Show on YFM. Sammy Forson treats listeners every weekday from 9am to midday to a spicy variety of music on the Myd-Morning Show and brings to the show a lot of charm, warmth and a unique ability to mix music tastefully, Sammy Forson's selection by Studio 53 Extra as one of the best DJs in Africa is not surprising since he was bound to be recognized world-wide soon.
