A Look Back At The “MAMA Awards” Daesang Winners Over The Last 8 Years

This year was the end of a three-year pattern!

The 2022 MAMA Awards have ended, and the year-end award show was iconic and jaw-dropping as always. From legends of the industry taking to the stage for the first time in years to monster rookies showing just how talented they are, there were performances for everyone to enjoy!

Of course, the awards given out were highly anticipated as well, especially the highly coveted daesangs — Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, and Worldwide Icon. This year marked the first time in four years that a new artist received a daesang at the MAMA Awards, making it a historic event! Here’s a look back at all the daesang winners of the past eight years.

Note that the Worldwide Icon category wasn’t added until 2018.
