MTV EMA Strips Wizkid Off His Best African Act Award
Recently, Wizkid won an award from MTV for 'Best African Act' which was received with much delight from Nigerians. Unfortunately, Nigerians and Tanzanians engaged in an online battle as they tussled on who deserved the award.
After much cry and complaints from Tanzanians, the organizers of the MTV Europe Music Awards has decided they would revoke the award formerly given to him and was awarded to Alikiba in Tanzania.
Well, the award was given based on votes from the public which was glaring that Alikiba was leading in the public eyes. The award was still given to Wizkid, which was not taken lightly from Tanzanians.
Later on, the organizers announced that Alikiba was the winner, which Wizkid was removed from the title given to him.
In a live facebook chat Alikiba had this to say:
"I’ve just gotten the confirmation that the award is coming back to Tanzania, but I can’t talk much about it, I’m still waiting to receive it"
Since the development of the news, Wizkid has removed all posts related to his initial award. Too bad!
