Nigerian celebrities Davido and Emmanuella were both defeated at the favourite African star category of the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
They lost to popular Ugandan start, Eddy Kenzo.
The loss came as a shock to many viewers as everyone expected either of the Nigerian entertainers, particularly Emmanuella, to take home the awards owing to their popularity across the world, but the Ugandan singer carried the day.
The Ugandan star took to his Facebook page to share the news of his triumph.
Real name, Edrisa Musuuza, Kenzo is best known for his 2014 song ‘Sitya Loss’.
In 2017, he released ‘Sembera Eno’ and ‘Jubilation’, two songs which were big hits in Uganda.
The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award award ceremony took place in Inglewood, California, US, on Sunday.
The winner was determined by voter preferences and other considerations.
Other African stars nominated for the award are Casper Nyovest (South Africa), Caster Somonya (South Africa), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania), and Eddy Kenzo (Uganda).
