He won with ‘Pain Killer’ which features Nigerian singer Runtown. Other contenders in that category were Becca, AKA, Ycee, Timaya, Tiwa Savage and Wande Coal.
Hosted by the 2018 Big Brother Nigeria Host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the ceremony saw the likes of Olamide, Davido, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid also win some major awards.
Nigeria had four artistes out of six in the Best New Act category: Maleek Berry, Mayorkun, Small Doctor and Dice Ailes.
