Nigerian singer, Wizkid has been named the winner of the BET International Act – Africa Award at a special ceremony held in Los Angeles, California.
The Starboy boss came ahead of the stiff
competition comprising of Davido, Mr Eazi, Tekno, Stonebwoy, Nasty C, Babes Wodumo and AKA. This is the second time the singer has won in this category, after going home with the award along with Sarkodie in 2012.
According to reports, Nasty C was reportedly announced the winner of the award by accident last week but BET made sure to apologise for what they referred to as a “glitch”.
However, Wizkid was unavailable to collect his award at the event.
