Wizkid Wins BET’s Best African Act
The Nigerian pop act jointly won the award with Ghanian rapper Sarkodie at the awards ceremony which was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on July 1, 2012.
The EME act and Sarkodie had fierce competition from other nominees – Nigerian rapper Ice Prince, Kenyan Hip-Hop/R&B group Camp Mulla, South African singer Lira and French speaking Malian rapper Mokobe for the coveted Best African Act prize.
This is not the first time the Best African Act award will be jointly won. Last year, African pop giants D'banj and 2face came out tops and received a joint award prize in the same category.

I guess there's no stopping for the Superstar!
