Wizkid emerged artiste of the year at the 2017 AFRIMA on Sunday beating another Nigerian music sensation Davido who bagged an award as the “Best African Act” at the 2017 MTV EMA.
The two awards have been a topic of debates among music lovers who have been debating the better of the two prizes.
Davido edged out his biggest contender in Nigeria, Wizkid, and his South African counterpart, Nasty C, to take home the MTV EMA.
Some of their fans had argued that Wizkid was supposed to win the MTV EMA having favourbaly competed globally with his nomination in the last Grammy.
Wizkid has a duet with one of the world bests, Drake in his music “Come Closer” and some of his songs this year had been rated very high.
Davido’s “Fall and If” no doubt were great releases that could compete with any of the songs from Africa, it won nothing at AFRIMA.
However, Davido beat Wizkid to clinch the MTV EMA. Other African acts who were in the same category include Babes Wodumo from South Africa, C4 Pedro from Angola and Nyashinki from Kenya.
