Former President, Goodluck Jonathan and the Senator representing Bayelsa East senatorial district, Ben Murray-Bruce, have applauded song celebrity, Ayo Balogun, or else often called Wizkid for defeating famous American rapper, JayZ and others to win the best international Act at this year’s MOBO awards.
Jonathan said: “When Nigeria does well, I cannot help but feel well. My happiness is tied to the happiness of Nigeria and when Nigerians break records and take the name of Nigeria to greater heights it exhilarates me.
“Thank you Wizkid for raising Nigeria’s flag high for the positive, not the negative. Your emergence as the Best International Act at the #MOBOAwards is a proud moment for Nigeria. And the fact that you emerged over JAY-Z and Drake makes it even more celebratory. WELL DONE.
Ben Murray Bruce wrote on Twitter “Dear @wizkidayo, I‘ve been in the entertainment business as an investor since 1980.
“One of my proudest moments for Nigerian music is the day you defeated both Jayz and @Drake, two of the biggest stars in the world, to win the Best International Act at the #MOBOAwards well done.”
