BET has just announced Wizkid as Winner of the Best International Act – Africa Award in a special ceremony held in Los Angeles, beating off stiff competition from Davido, Mr Eazi, Tekno, Stonebwoy, Nasty C, Babes Wodumo and AKA. It’s the Starboy’s 2nd win in this category, first taking home the award (alongside Sarkodie) back in 2012.
Nasty C had initially been accidentally announced as winner sometime last week, but BET quickly apologized for the “glitch”. Gotta admit they finally got it right!
Wizkid, however, wasn’t there to collect his award. More to follow…
