Wizkid & Davido Emerge Winners in 2017 MOBO Awards

The 2017 edition of the Music of Black Origin (MOBO) awards held in First Direct Arena, Leeds, United Kingdom and Nigeria’s biggest (rival) stars, Wizkid & Davido emerged winners of the night.

The 22nd edition of the prestigious black music award might have thrown both Wizkid & Davido in another war of superiority as although Wizkid emerged winner in his category; Best International Act, beating star artistes like Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar , Cardi B among others to the award, Wizkid was also nominated in the Best African Act category which Davido carted away. .

As the online debate on who the bigger African international act continues to intensify on social media, we at African Entertainment think both artistes are equally amazing and have done absolutely well in pushing Nigerian music to its current place in the international market.

Well done Wizkid & Davido !
