The Soundcity MVP Awards, which recognizes accomplished musicians across Africa, took place in on Saturday, and some our our favorite artists took home trophies in major categories.
Winners include South African singer Busiswa, who won Best Female MVP, Davido who won Best Pop Artist, Mr Eazi who won Digital Artist of the Year, Teni the Entertainer who won Best New Artist, AKA who won Best Hip-Hop Artist and many more.
But the big winner of the night was none other than Burna Boy who won a total of four awards—the most for any artists at Saturday’s show. He wasn’t in attendance, but his mother and manager Bose Ogulu attended on his behalf and ended up stealing the show with her lively acceptance speeches.
When the artist won the award for Song of the Year for his hit single “Ye,” Burna’s mother took to the stage to thank a number of people including Kanye West for making a mistake and calling his album ‘Ye’. She also told the world to “expect more madness” in 2019.
Burna Boy’s real name Damini Ogulu is from Rivers state in South South Nigeria. He was based in UK before relocating back to Nigeria some years back. His kind of music has a touch of dance Hall and Afro beats, making him a unique entertainer.
His home state has been set agog for being the biggest winner from the Soundcity MVP awards. Just as the saying goes, success has many relatives, the people of the state are proud of his achievements. They have taken over the social media space to celebrate and associate with the Artists of the Year, Burna Boy for his stellar achievements
