Nigerian pop star Wizkid has won the coveted Best International Act – Africa at the 2017 BET Awards in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, June 25.
The Starboy Entertainment CEO beat South African rappers AKA and Nasty C, South African kwaito singer Babes Wodumo, as well as Nigerian acts Davido and Mr Eazi to bag the award.
However, Wizkid was not available to collect the award.
BET Awards had previously erroneously announced South African rapper Nasty C as the winner of the Best International Act – Africa before apologising for the mix-up.
Wizkid, who is set to embark on an international tour with American rapper and singer Future in July, first won the BET Best International Act- African in 2012.
