The year 2017 has been a big year for the Ronaldo and Messi of Nigerian music, Wizkid and Davido. The former’s latest win as the “Best International Act” at the 2017 Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards yesterday, a progression from winning Best African Act in 2011 and 2016, proves a streak of winning we should all be proud of.
Nigeria was duly represented at the 2017 MOBO Awards as Wizkid and Davido both won honours at the event held at the First Direct Arena, Leeds England.
Wizkid, real name Ayo Balogun, beat Jay-Z, Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar and others to clinch the best international artist award at the event on Wednesday.
However, Maleek Berry, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Wande Coal also represented the green-white-green flag by getting nominated, but they did not win any of the categories.
