Davido Wins Best African Act At MTV EMAs 2017

2017 has been a special year for African pop singers like Davido and Wizkid, who have gained recognition and been awarded huge successes both locally and internationally.

We were excited and anxious earlier in the year when some of our favourite acts from across Africa were nominated for Best African Act at the 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs).

Babes Wodumo (South Africa), C4 Pedro (Angola), Davido (Nigeria), Nasty C (South Africa), Nyashinski and WizKid were put in a battle of dominance in their contest for the award.

Davido, who had been having a stellar year with the huge successes he’s had and awards he’s already won, added to his achievements by winning the award.

The excited singer announced his victory with an Instagram post, writing:

“I’M ON FiAAAAAAA!! 🔥 Thank you everybody. THIS IS FOR YOU MOM! ❤️ ❤️❤️ #30BG”
