Wizkid $tripped of MTV’s EMA Best African Act award

Wizkid
The MTV Europe Music Awards has finally $tripped off Nigeria’s Wizkid
of the Best African Act award and given it to Ali Kiba after days of public
outcry from Tanzanians.

The award that was subject to a public vote became a subject of
discussion after votes showed Ali Kiba was leading but the organisers
gave Wizkid the trophy during the ceremony in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Ali Kiba said he was awaiting communication from the award organisers
and on Wednesday, MTV Base East Africa made the announcement.

During a Facebook live chat, Ali Kiba said;

“Sasa ndio nimepata confirmation kwamba ni kweli tuzo inakuja Tanzania na vile vile mimi siwezi kuzungumzia, nitasubiri mpaka nizishike (I’ve
just gotten the confirmation that the award is coming back to Tanzania,
but I can’t talk much about it, I’m still waiting to receive it),”
He added that the award organisers got in touch with his management and admitted the mistake clarifying that he was the winner as voted by the public.

Wizkid has since deleted all Instagram posts regarding the award.
