Today is a glorious day for Tanzanians and East Africans alike. The MTV Europe Best African act is with it’s rightful owner- Ali Kiba.

Tanzanians rallied together to protest when the award was initially given to Wizkid.

The award that was subject to a public vote became a subject of discussion after votes showed Alikiba was leading but the organisers gave Wizkid the trophy during the ceremony in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

During a Facebook live chat Alikiba revealed the information to his fans.

Sasa ndio nimepata confirmation kwamba ni kweli tuzo inakuja Tanzania na vile vile mimi siwezi kuzungumzia, nitasubiri mpaka nizishike (I’ve just gotten the confirmation that the award is coming back to Tanzania, but I can’t talk much about it, I’m still waiting to receive it.

Wizkid has since deleted all Instagram posts regarding the award that is given alongside that of Best Worldwide Act.
