So, it turns out Wizkid has been stripped of his “Best African Act” Award at the recently held MTV EMAs. The award now goes to Tanzanian superstar Alikiba who, apparently, got the most votes on MTVEMA.com, the official voting site. Wizkid, however, retains his “Best Worldwide Act” Award.
See the MTV statement via Alikiba‘s InstaGram page:
Namshukuru MUNGU Na Shukrani kwa MTV kwa heshima hii, nina furaha sana kwa ushindi huu, ni heshima kwangu na nchi yangu Tanzania ?? pamoja na East Africa nzima kiujumla. Shukrani sana kwa familia yangu, management yangu na mashabiki zangu wote – nawapenda sana #bloodfanswaalikiba #Kajiandae #KingKiba
