Popular Nigerian pop star Ayo Balogun a.k.a. Wizkid, clinched three major awards on Sunday night at the All Africa Music Awards held at the Eko Convention Centre, Lagos.

The Star boy clinched three major awards: Best West African Artiste award, The Song of the Year and the Artiste of the year, trumping the likes of Davido, Runtown, Tekno and others.

Wizkid’s win came shortly after Davido edged him out at the 2017 MTV EMA by winning the “Best African Act”.

Wizkid’s big win has once again renewed his long-standing battle for supremacy with Davido.

While giving his acceptance speech, the Ojuelegba crooner thanked 2baba and DJ Jimmy Jatt for their contributions to the African music landscape.

As expected, Wizkid arrived late and his entry sent the sold-out crowd into frenzy. While some jostled to take a selfie with him, others stood up to catch a glimpse of him. His bouncers had a hard time trying to prevent the crowd from mobbing him. This time, he did not rain down Naira bills on his fans.

Tiwa Savage, Simi, YCee, Wande Coal, 2baba, Adasa Cookey and Orezi were also among the winners on the night.
