Exclusive Soundcity MVP Awards 2020 Winners list and nominees

Nominees for the awards were announced a few weeks earlier and the night promised to be one of immense fun. Performers at the event were announced as Diamond Platnumz, Prince Kaybee, Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Rema, Stonebwoy and so forth.

Entries commenced around 8 pm in the evening and songstress, Good Girl LA was one of the first few to perform. Other performers include Oxlade, Big Tril, Joeboy, Fireboy and so forth. South African media personality, Bonang Matheba hosted the event.

But the story of the night was how three of the biggest artists from Nigeria’s new guard went home with awards. Another story is also how the awards reaffirmed Nigeria’s status as the kings of African music.

While Burna Boy cemented his throne as the new king of afrobeats with his second successive win for African Artist of the year, Naira Marley also went home with his first award.
