Naija's Wizkid Beats Jay Z, Cardi B, Drake To Win Best International Act At MOBO Awards

Nigerians keep going places and Nigeria entertainer, Wizkid has never cease to make us proud. The starboy wizzy beat the like of Drake, Jay Z Cardi B and others to win the Best International Act award at the recently concluded MOBO Awards 2017.

Fresh out of the controversy surrounding his not being present at his mentors's (Banky W) wedding, though he has explained why, I think his fans will now put every other thing aside to celebrate him on this milestone he just reached.

At the Just concluded MOBO Awards 2017 that took place in Leeds at the First Direct Arena, Wizkid and Davido have taken home some major awards. Wizkid won the category of Best International Act against fellow nominees which are great American artistes and legends such as JayZ, Cardi-B, Solange, Drake, SZA, DJ Khaled, Travis Scott, Migos and Kendrick Lamar.

Now that is the wave and success of a "Baba Nla" like he fondly calls himself and we are excited about this height of recognized international acclaim. Other stars who shone last night include, Stormzy, J Hus and Craig David.

Former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan congratulated him via Facebook;

''When Nigeria does well, I cannot help but feel well. My happiness is tied to the happiness of Nigeria and when Nigerians break records and take the name of Nigeria to greater heights it exhilarates me. Thank you Wizkid for raising Nigeria’s flag high for the positive, not the negative. 

Your emergence as the Best International Act at the #MOBOAwards is a proud moment for Nigeria. And the fact that you emerged over JAY-Z and Drake makes it even more celebratory. WELL DONE. GEJ.

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar also congratulated him via Instagram;

My young friend, Wiz Kid @wizkidayobeat other big international artists to win one of the world's biggest music awards.


RnB Singer, Banky Willington aka Banky W congratulated him via Instagram;
