While fans generally agreed with the winners of most of the categories at Soundcity MVP Awards, there was a brief moment where they agreed with the choice of a certain category.
The Male MVP category comprised favourite Davido, Runtown, Sarkodie, Wizkid, Shatta Wale, 2Baba, Olamide and Tanzanian act Diamond Platinumz and the expectation was that Davido would win it.
However, when Nollywood legend Richard Mofe-Damijo announced the winner to be Diamond Platinumz, the hall went into a loud chant of disapproval, screaming ‘O.B.O,O.B.O!!’
Even RMD had to comment that usually, the voice of people is the voice of God, but that he could only announce the winner chosen by the voters.
