MTV Europe Music Awards Strips Wizkid Of The Best Africn Act Award


MTV Europe Music Awards has finally stripped  Wizkid (Nigeria) of the Best African Act award and given it to Ali Kiba(Tanzania) after days of outcry from Ali Kiba's fans from Tanzanians.

Kiba on Monday said he was awaiting words from the award organisers and on Wednesday, MTV Base East Africa made the announcement.

The award votes showed Ali Kiba was at the fore front, he was leading but the organisers gave the award to  Wizkid during the ceremony in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

“Sasa ndio nimepata confirmation kwamba ni kweli tuzo inakuja Tanzania na vile vile mimi siwezi kuzungumzia, nitasubiri mpaka nizishike (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),” said the singer during a Facebook live chat.

He also said that the award organisers got in touch with his management and admitted their mistake clearing up the confusion about the public voting him.
This is not so good for Wizkid as he has deleted every post about the award on Instagram.
