The Soundcity MVP awards went down last night and lots of Nigerian stars turned up for the event.

Davido, Olamide, Tiwa Savage, Maleek Berry, Sakordie and more African stars were all present at the awards show.

But one celebrity was noticeably absent last night, and it’s none other than Starboy Wizkid.

Wizkid, who was nominated for 6 awards, won one, The Digital Artiste of the year, but wasn’t available to receive it himself. This is because he was in London for Ycee’s Show.

Ycee had his first headline show, the “Juice Concert” in London and Wizkid was among the headlining acts.

The show featured supporting acts like Eugy, Sona, Bella, MsBanks & Flosha. There were also surprise appearances from top acts; Wizkid, Falz & comedian Basketmouth.

The 2017 Soundcity MVP Awards held last night at the Eko Convention Centre and the center of attraction was definitely Davido. The superstar grabbed headlines for scoring what can be termed an “hat-trick”, three awards.

His massive 2017 hit “IF” won Song of the Year and Video of the Year while he also bagged the African Artist of the Year award. In other top categories, Maleek Berry won Best New Act, Tiwa Savage won Best Female MVP, Diamond Platnumz won Best Male MVP and Sarkodie won Best Collaboration for his “Painkiller” song with Runtown.
