Davido & Wizkid Get Major Wins At The 2017 MOBO Awards | Full Winners List
Two of Nigeria’s hottest artistes, Davido and Wizkid walked away with two major awards at the MOBO Awards which was held yesterday at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, United Kingdom.
DMW boss Davido emerged winner of the Best African Act award at the 2017 MOBO Awards, beating out Eugy, Juls, Maleek Berry, Mr Eazi, Sarkodie and more. Not only did he win an award, he also performed at the ceremony.
It was also a good night for Starboy Wizkid as he won the Best International Act beating superstars like Drake, SZA, Cardi B, JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar and more.
Though both artistes made the country proud, a congratulatory message from Senator Ben Murray-Bruce was written to Wizkid whose award is viewed to be greater than that of Davido’s.
The Senator took to his Twitter account to applaud Wizkid on his amazing win.
He wrote, “Dear @wizkidayo, I‘ve been in the entertainment business as an investor since 1980 and one of my proudest moments for Nigerian music is the day you defeated both Jayz and @Drake, two of the biggest stars in the world, to win the Best international Act at the #MOBOAwards well done”
