MTV EMA 2016: Wizkid Gets Stripped Of ‘Best Africa Act’ Title

The MTV Europe Music Awards has finally stripped 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 organizers gave Wizkid the trophy during the ceremony in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Ali Kiba said he was awaiting communication from the award organizers and on Wednesday, MTV Base East Africa Rotterdam, Netherlands 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.alikiba-best-african-act-2016 wizkid-alikiba

    That is a big embarrassment to Wizkid, and possibly if he wishes to sue the organizers i believe he will be on the better side.
