Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan and Senator Ben Bruce have both taken to their respective social media handles to hail Superstar Wizkid for making Nigerians proud at the 2017 MOBO Awards.
The Starboy Records Boss defeated international big stars like Jay Z and Drake to win “Best International Act” at the prestigious award ceremony which held at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, United Kingdom.
Former President Goodluck wrote: “When Nigeria does well, I cannot help but feel well. My happiness is tied to the happiness of Nigeria and when Nigerians break records and take the name of Nigeria to greater heights it exhilarates me. Thank you Wizkid for raising Nigeria’s flag high for the positive, not the negative. Your emergence as the Best International Act at the #MOBOAwards is a proud moment for Nigeria. And the fact that you emerged over JAY-Z and Drake makes it even more celebratory. WELL DONE. GEJ.”
Sen. Bruce wrote: “Dear @wizkidayo, I‘ve been in the entertainment business as an investor since 1980 and one of my proudest moments for Nigerian music is the day you defeated both Jayz and @Drake, two of the biggest stars in the world, to win the Best international Act at the #MOBOAwards well done.”
