Starboy and Sony Music Act, Wizkid keeps making Nigerians proud in one way or the other. Now he has won the 2017 BET (Black Entertainment Television) Awards "Best African International Act Award".
2017 has been a great year for 26 year old Nigerian singer Wizkid. Last year, he was all the rage when he made the hit One Dance with international singer/rapper Drake. This year, he continued with hits such as Come Closer featuring Drake and very recently, Naughty Ride featuring Major Lazer.
Nigerians were gutted when he did not win the Grammy award he was nominated this year but he has made it up to us because yesterday, Saturday June 25, BET officially announced him as the the 2017 "Best African International Act Award" recipient.
For those who are wondering what the big deal is, his fellow nominees were: Tekno (Nigeria), Mr. Eazi (Nigeria), Davido (Nigeria), Stonebwoy (Ghana), AKA (South Africa), Nasty C (South Africa), and Babes Wodumo (South Africa).
