      I also think the Azonto Video is crap too but you cannot discredit the awards because it is decided by votes. Did you vote for Ice Prince, et al? And moreover @wizkidayo has over 900,000 ffs on Twiiter, need I say more?

    What exactly special is ice prince singing that he should win instead of wizkid? Is it his yeye “vip” and “aboki” songs that sound exactly thesame? Or his constant generic rap in all his recent songs. Abeg shift make I see road! He didn’t even deserve to win th eBET award, he only won coz Nigeria is the most populous african country, and the winner is determined through votes.

    In my books,award organisers are like politicians. You are guilty until you prove otherwise. The level of complicity in these awards are mind boggling. They are often avenues to settle scores or get paid for publicity. Just ignore the awards and merits therein, just enjoy the pics and drama.

    Congrats to the winner , but it unfortunate in history of Channel O that nigeria did not dominate the award.

    …Listening to all the songs Wizkid has put out there, he is currently the best entertainer in Africa. He works so hard to attain this, and deserves to be celebrated for his work. The guy is good! Song after song. He is also the African with the largest and most loyal fans world wide. Thanks to him, Banky and P square for making Nigerians proud.

    Please all I want to know is why Channel O insists on calling these awards ‘Most Gifted’!!! What is wrong with ‘Best video of the year’? ‘Best R’n’B artist’, please they ned to change abet, how can a video be gifted? dafuq?
