Davido tells AFRIMA to “keep your peeling award” after winning 2 MTV EMAs

On Sunday November 12, superstar singer Davido won Best Worldwide Act and Best African Act at the 2017 MTV EMAs but was snubbed by the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) which held on the same day.

The singer became the first African act to win two MTV EMAs in one night while his perpetual rival, Wizkid, won three awards at AFRIMA.

“Let those ones keep their awards. That award that peels.

“Even the ones that I collected last year would have peeled completely.”

The singer continued, saying, “My name is David. You can’t play with me and get away with it. 2018, I’m coming for you”.
