The MTV EMAs ‘Best African Act’ award that Nigeria’s Wizkid won and celebrated with his fans on Sunday, November 6, 2016, has been withdrawn from him and awarded to his bitter rival, Tanzania’s Ali Kiba.
The new development comes as a major shock considering that it was the verified Twitter handle of MTV Base Africa that announced Wizkid as the winner of the ‘Best African Act‘ category while the award ceremony was going on.
In contention with Wizkid for the award were Olamide, Black Coffee, Cassper Nyovest, and Ali Kiba.
Now, without any announcement or explanation, the organisers seem to have withdrawn the award from Wizkid and award same to Tanzanian singer, Ali Kiba as the information on their website suggests.
This development makes it the second time that Nigeria’s Starboy is losing to Tanzania’s Ali Kiba after the latter trumped the former in a supremacy battle at a concert in Kenya last October.
