Now those who compare wizkid and davido will now realise there is a big difference davido is a guy full with lot of talents and born with silver spoon but though he worked for his money but with support of his dad but wizkid worked for his money even olamide gave him respect cause wizkid was in limelight before him ride on boy

Tochukwu Uchendu said...

That list is incomplete. Linda Ikeji is our choice personality of the year. To the other Nigerian winners: Yemi Alade, Wizkid, Tekno, and Patoranking, I wish to state that Patoranking deserve more winnings. I don't know how these results are populated but it isn't just fair in my eyes. Sorry my opinion is personal.

Many imbeciles on here really.MAMA Awards is for music. Is Linda a musician? Beggars be calling linda in everything cos y'all want 50k prize. Get your thinking caps on and act like you're literates fools.

Classicnoble said...

Correct!

christie benjamin said...

i was so disappointed with some of the winners...Drake over Rih, Bey and Adele? Rubbish! Yeah, hes a sexy guy but c'mon it's not fair! Castor over Linda Ikeji? Thats madness!! I'm beginning to think Drump and Buhari's hand was init bc they "Respect (hate)women" and its a strong indication that those that voted those guys that won equally "Respects(hate) Women" the Buhari style! The whole thing was so fucked up! #timewasted. I'm proud of you, mama.

CORRECTION - Even though Drake is Canadian-American, he represents Canada at the Awards Shows. He does not represent the USA.

Lindร  take note,its abiut time you get your head out of you hairy ass to realize that your have the most disloyal fan base ive ever seen. Im no fan but i follow your blog just for any news i see that's worth it. All your fans are very disloyal. All show no substance,even the ones commenting and hailing you both on your blog and instagram couldnt vote fir yiu? You have a heavy fan base,heavier than bn and SDK but is wear if SDK got the nomination,she'd win it hands down! That's how loyal her fans are. This just goes to show that you can only get psychophants by showing off on ig or listing all your charitable works,trying to be sweet when youre not. Just be you and stop the fakeness cuz your psychophants might defend you to heavens because of what theyd get from you but whn it comes to making sacrifices for you like a simple vote,theyd pick tgr crazy SDK and bn who are always thenselves and not afraud to shiw it.


YOUR FANS ARE DISLOYAL! THE MOST DISLOYAL IVE SEEN.

Anonymous said...

All of yoi should stfu! Did you vote? Her fan base can make her win unchallenged. All mouth,no show

Faith Uba said...

Linda you don't post anything about Wizkid on your blog no more! don't let the devil use you to destroy your carrier. I love you! Wizkid is Africas biggest Artist!
Keep your differences aside, forgive and forget! Thank for your understanding. Love you muaaaaaah
