Nigerian music stars Wiz Kid and Davido have been nominated in the Best African Act category for the 2017 MTV Europe Music Award.

It has been a really spectacular year for Nigerian music with both singers dutifully leading the pack. From massive collaborations to sold-out concerts, both artists have done so much for the culture, we can’t even begin to imagine the industry without them.

So, it comes as no surprise that both of them have been regulars on the nominees’ lists of a ton of award shows, both home and abroad – although they are usually relegated to the world or African music categories.

They are nominated alongside other brilliant artistes from around Africa, including Babes Wodumo (South Africa) C4 Pedro (Angola), Nasty C  (South Africa) and Nyashinski (Kenya). Sidebar: Why isn’t ‘Mama Africa’ herself, Yemi Alade, nominated too?

The winner will be determined by the fans, so be sure to vote for the artiste you think deserves it the most right here. The winner will be announced during the show on November 13. You can also check out the rest of the nominees here.
