Wizkid wins best international act in Mobos

Nigerian superstar Wizkid has won Best International Artist in the Mobos in London.

Nigerian media are reporting that he is the first African act to do so.

One of his biggest songs is a collaboration with the Canadian star Drake.

The Mobos – which stands for music of black origin – started in 1996.

So, if Pulse Newspaper is correct, it is surprising that this is the first time an African has won.

But there is also a category for best African act, which Nigerian superstar Davido won this year.

One of his biggest songs of 2017 is Fall.

So the suggestion is that, because there is already an African category in the awards, Africans are forgotten about in the International category.

The big winner of the Mobos this year is British-Ghanaian Stormzy.

He picked up three awards – best male act, best grime act and won best album for Gang Signs & Prayer.

The London star broke into the mainstream this year with a number one album and top 10 single, Big For Your Boots.

Stormzy is not the only British African who is a big grime star. Skepta and JME are both British-Nigerian.
