Last year, it went to fellow Nigerian artist Tiwa Savage, who was the first female act to win the award. This marks the fourth year in a row that a Nigerian artist has claimed the title.

It wasn’t the only highlight of the artist’s weekend either. Last night, he performed a sold-out show at London’s Wembley (SSE) Arena, where he was joined on stage by the likes of WizkidStormzy, Dave and M.Anifest.

According to Not Just Ok, he is the first “afrobeats” artist to sell out the SSE and he was presented a plaque during the show.
