After a tough competition across all sub-Saharan Africa, MTV announced that Nigerian superstar D’banj has been named Best African Act of the “2012 MTV EMA,” having received the most votes from fans across sub-Saharan Africa.
In appreciation of fans who made his emergence possible, Dbanj has this to say: “I am once again humbled by the support that you have all shown me. You guys have made me all I am, and I want to thank my loyal fans who voted me to win EMA from the bottom of my heart. Eja Nla is grateful Oluwa is involved! Ooossshhheee!”
He will now go head-to-head against India’s Alobo Naga and the Band and Ahmed Soultan from the Middle East for the chance to represent the region in the ‘Worldwide Act’ category.
