What a time to be Nigerian!

Nigerians went to bed happy last night as two of our biggest acts, Davido and Wizkid carted away major awards at the 2017 MOBO Awards held in Leeds, UK.

Wizkid won the MOBO award for Best International Act, beating the likes of Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Migos, Cardi B and many others.

Davido also picked up the MOBO award for best African act, while also making history by being the first African artiste to perform at the MOBO’s.

Both artistes have had an amazing year and their recognition is well deserved.

Other Nigerian artists like Maleek Berry, Tekno, Tiwa Savage, Wande Coal and Mr Eazi were also nominated for this category.

This is a very big step forward for Africa and Nigeria, as it signifies that our music has grown tremendously in the past 10 years.
