Nigeria hip-hop superstar David Adeleke also known as Davido emerged the best African act at Sunday’s MTV Europe award.
Davido beat compatriot Wizkid and South Africa’s Nasty C to grab the award at the annual ceremony held at the SSE Arena at Wembley, London.
They have both been nominated for the award at least two times each.
Davido was performing in Angola’s capital Luanda this weekend so didn’t make it to the ceremony. But he thanked everyone, including his mother, in an Instragram post.
The post said “I’M ON FiAAAAAAA!!!” making a reference to his new song FIA, a hit single he released recently.
The other contenders in the category included Babes Wodumo, Kenyan Nyashinski and Angolan C4 Pedro.
