Nigerian pop superstar, Wizkid and Tanzania’s Ali Kiba are not best of friends considering their not so long encounter on stage and MTV EMA has reignited the feud.
MTV EMA Humiliates Wizkid, Strips Him Of Award & Gifts It To Tanzanian Rival
Their beef became public knowledge in October 2016 when America pop star Chris Brown headlined the Mombasa Rocks concert in Kenya with Wizkid and Ali Kiba as supporting acts
The argument dragged for a little while and affected the concert by delaying Chris Brown’s appearance which had to be pushed to past 11 p.m.
Ali Kiba finally won the contest and Wizkid performed before him.
Now, a miscommunication by MTV has once again brought the two acts together.
On Sunday, Wizkid was initially announced as the winner of the MTV EMAs ‘Best African Act’, only for the organisers to realise there was a mistake and Ali Kiba announced as the rightful winner subsequently.
This will be the second time the 2 African stars have had to battle and once again, Ali bashed Wizzy
