D’banj voted ‘Best African Act’ for the 2012 MTV EMA!

D’banj has been announced as the ‘Best African Act’ for the forthcoming MTV Europe Music Awards.

The DB Records boss beat four other African nominees – Camp Mulla from Kenya, Sarkodie form Ghana and South Africa’s Mi Casa as well as Nigerian counterpart Wizkid to come tops.

Wizkid was nominated last year but lost to 25-year-old Moroccan, Abdelfattah Grini. D’banj, as announced by MTV, received the most votes from fans across sub-Saharan Africa.

He has previously won Best African Act at the 2007 MTV EMA, ‘Artist of the Year’ at both the 2008 and 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards, and ‘Best International Act: Africa’ at the 2011 BET Awards which he shared with 2face.

He will now go on to contend with other music artistes India’s Alobo Naga & the Band and Ahmed Soultan from the Middle East for the chance to represent the region in the Worldwide Act category.

The 19th edition of the awards which will be hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum will take place in Frankfurt on November 11, 2012.
