When aespa’s returned to South Korea after their Thanksgiving gig, they bagged another first. The group got not one but three awards at the Asia Artist Awards ceremony that they attended as nominees. The girl group won three titles but one that stood out the most was the Daesang, their first grand prize after debuting. The group, aespa won the Daesang for ‘Stage of the Year’ for their performances of their hit singles, ‘Black Mamba’, ‘Next Level’, and ‘Savage’ at the 2021 Asia Artist Awards (2021 AAA).
