Cape Verde has participated in the Own Africavision Song Contest 7 times since its debut in the first edition. The country's best result is 4th place, achieving this at the Own Africavision Song Contest 3.
In their debut they got robbed with the song "Loco" by the talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique Jennifer Dias ft. Elji Beatzkilla, placing 13th in the Grand Final. In the second edition we said YES to male singers and sent Djodje with "Atrevido", getting robbed again placing 17th in the Final.
The robberies streak finished in the third edition thanks to Lisandro Cuxi, who's song "Dançar" managed to achieve the 4th place in the contest, giving it's first AQ spot to Cape Verde and so far the best placement of the archipielago. The Grand Final place was obtained by Yasmine, who won the first edition of Festival do Praia with "Quem é?", who finished in a respectable 19th position.
Jennifer Dias finally got her revenge in the fifth edition, achieving the 5th place alongside Sureno Beatzz & Supa Squad with the song "Boom". Mongolian-Capeverdean singer Naam managed to win the second edition of Festival Do Praia by a huge margin with "Gun Tsenher", automatically classified to the final she was the first Asian to represent the African country. Naam finished 7th in the final, missing the top6 and an AQ streak by just one place.
