Worldwide act and patron of the global Afrobeat sound, Davido has just been declared the winner of the Best Male West Africa Category at the just held 2018 edition of the AFRIMMA awards.
The African Muzik Magazine Awards brought some shimmer and shine to the House of Blues in Dallas, Texas USA over the weekend where some of the biggest international promoters of African music were recognized for their industry imprint.
Just as predicted, leader of the 30 billion gang, Davido, was awarded the best in the category for male artists in West Africa, making it the third time he would be picking up this award in consecutive years.
Davido successfully advanced over Nigerian contenders including Wizkid, Tekno, Kiss Daniel and Mr Eazi alongside African colleagues Sarkodie, J Hus, Stonebwoy, Toofan and Sidibe Diabate to emerge winner. His win further validates relentless efforts in pushing boundaries to attain revered status not only for himself but also for patriots actively involved in the Africa to the World movement.
Davido who was recently announced on the platform of the MTV EMA 2018 for his nomination as the Best African Act will be looking to replicate his victory feat at the next award stop in Washington DC, USA for the Nigeria Entertainment Awards. Voting links are now open and available online and on social media.
