Star Boy, Wizkid, was the biggest winner at the All Africa Music Awards held on Sunday night at the Eko Convention Centre, Lagos.
The pop star clinched three major awards: Best West African Artiste award, The Song of the Year and the Artiste of the year, trumping the likes of Davido, Runtown, Tekno and others.
Wizkid’s win came shortly after Davido edged him out at the 2017 MTV EMA by winning the “Best African Act”.
Wizkid’s big win has once again renewed his long-standing battle for supremacy with Davido.
In his acceptance speech, the Ojuelegba crooner thanked 2baba and DJ Jimmy Jatt for their contributions to the African music landscape.
As expected, Wizkid arrived late and his entry sent the sold-out crowd into frenzy. While some jostled to take a selfie with him, others stood up to catch a glimpse of him. His bouncers had a hard time trying to prevent the crowd from mobbing him. This time, he did not rain down Naira bills on his fans.
Nigerian acts Simi, M.I, Tiwa Savage, Ycee, Orezi, 2Baba all bagged awards.
Meanwhile, midway through her energetic performance at the award ceremony, singer, Seyi Shay, lost her balance, slipped and fell.
The singer picked herself up almost immediately and continued performing her hit song, Yolo Yolo.
She later recalled the incident by saying “the devil is a liar”. Her fall is currently a subject of discourse on social media.
