Wizkid stripped of MTV’s EMA Best African Act award
By Rita Chioma
In a twist of fate, MTV European Music Awards has stripped Nigerian music star, Wizkid off the award as the “Best Africa Act” which he supposedly won at the award show held a couple of days ago.
As is the usual practice, Wizkid was announced as the winner of the prestigious award even a day before the actual show was held.
However, the MTV EMAs website now reflects Tanzanian singer, Alikiba as the winner of the award and Starboy Wizkid has deleted all reference to him winning the award off his social media pages.
It would be recalled that this isn’t the first time Wizkid and Alikiba are at loggerheads for recognition.
The two stars had an altercation at Chris Brown’s Mombasa Rocks Music Festival in Kenya a couple of weeks ago where Alikiba made claims to be a bigger star than Wizkid in Kenya – a country neither of them is from.
