Wizkid Emerges Best African Act At MTV Europe Music Awards 2016
Wizkid Emerges Best African Act: Ayo ‘Wizkid’ Balogun has been named the Best African Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards.
The announcement was made via the MTV Base Africa twitter page [@MTVBaseAfrica] ahead of the show.
The announcement was made few hours ahead of the ceremony, which is holding this evening at the Ahoy Stadium, Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner defeated African heavyweights including Black Coffee and Cassper Nyovest from South Africa, Olamide and Ali Kiba of Tanzania.
Some weeks ago, the 26-year-old music star also won Best African Act at the MOBO Awards in London.
