MTV Europe made a mistake in awarding Wizkid as ‘Best African act’!

13 November 2016, 07:36

Lagos - Nigeria’s Wizkid  may have  returned the award for  ‘Best African Act’ award, which has now been given to   Tanzania’s Ali Kiba, but  retains the “Best Worldwide Act” award.

 The stripping of Wizkid of the African award caused anger across  social media, but  MTV explained:

‘Both Wizkid and Alikiba are great artistes and deserving winners at the MTV EMAs and we congratulate them wholeheartedly on their achievements.  We apologize for any confusion but we are pleased to recognize the achievements of both these artists on this global platform. ‘Worldwide Act’ winners, including Wizkid, were selected by an international committee of MTV music executives to recognize current artists who are rising to have a wider geographic appeal beyond their local regions”
