Wizkid Singer continues his domination with 3 awards in one weekend

While many of you unplugged from life during the weekend to catch a breather and sleep the stress away, Wizkid was packing up the multiple awards. At this Weekend, he picked up 3.

The Nigerian pop superstar is currently enjoying a great year in his career. Wizkid struck gold at this year’s MTV EMAs, earning not one but two trophies at the global music spectacular. The Nigerian star was honoured with trophies for Best African Act and Worldwide Act, topped only by Justin Bieber, who took home three trophies: Best Song, Best Fans and Best Canadian Act, and matching Lady Gaga who won trophies for Best Female and Best Look.

Prior to this Wizkid had earlier been announced as the winner of the Best African Act at the The 2016 Music of Black Origin, MOBO Awards ceremony, which took place in Glasgow, Scotland.

Also, at the 2016 AFRIMA awards which held at the Eko Convention Centre, Eko Hotels & Suites, the singer was honoured as the Best Artiste on the continent. He came out victorious in a category that had Black Coffee, Diamond Platnumz, Eddy Kenzo, Hatim Ammor, Navio, Sarkodie, Sidikiba Diabate, Tekno, Tiwa Savage, and Zahara.

This marks a trifecta of awards for the young singer who has had a successful 2016.

He also did collaborate with South Africa’s DJ Maphorisa on ‘Soweto baby’, a song which fetched him the trophy for the Best Collaboration. He was also a star on Tinie Tempah’s ‘Mamacita’, and released ‘Shabba’, which featured Chris Brown, Trey Songz and French Montana.

All of these has ensured that the brand Wizkid is the biggest on the African continent at the moment, and award platforms recognise that, leading to a deluge of them. It’s been raining awards for ‘Baba Nla’, and this past weekend signified a new peak.
