Our favorite moments:

When (Part Of) The 30 Billion Gang Came to Receive Mayorkun’s “Next Rated” Award

They are not called a gang for nothing! They must represent; and they did when Mayorkun was announced as the winner of the coveted “Next Rated” award at the show. They literally “scattered everywhere”.

Simi Hails Her “Man”

Vocal powerhouse Simi who carted home 3 awards at the show – Best RnB Single for Smile for Me, the Best Recording of the Year for Joromi, and her album Simisola won the Album of the Year – in her appreciation speech for the latter, gave a shout out to her “man” who she says has been supporting her. And you guessed right; she didn’t mention a name. But no one mentioned Adekunle Gold sha.

Davido tells Artistes to Help As Many People as they Can

Davido, who also won three awards – IF won the Best Pop Single and Song of the Year categories, and was also named the Artiste of the Year – called on artistes to always lend a helping hand to people, noting that the over 2 dozen persons on stage with him have received one form of help or the other from him and he can’t wake up each day to see people in need without doing something. He says that’s why he’s blessed.

He thereafter challenged artistes to help others. He also dedicated the award to God, family ………… and of course, Chioma!
