Singer Ali kiba was given a warm welcome after arriving in Tanzania from South Africa. The singer is coming from SA after winning the controversial MTV EMA’s Best African Act in 2016.
Ali Kiba has just arrived from South Africa and he couldn’t have been happier.
The singer was met by hundreds of fans upon landing in country after his rather controversial MTV win which made Tanzanians and Nigerians attack each other online.
In 2016 there was drama after Wizkid was announced the winner of MTV EMA’s Best African Act while Ali Kiba had won the fans’ votes.
The error sparked a social media outcry and MTV cleared the air on the unfortunate error announcing Kiba as the winner.
MTV said: “Both Wizkid and Alikiba are great artistes and deserving winners at the MTV EMAs and we congratulate them wholeheartedly on their achievements. We apologise for any confusion but we are pleased to recognise the achievements of both these artists on this global platform.”
The winners were chosen based off a range of criteria including international MTV video play, radio airplay, streams, and sales across multiple territories and regions.
According to reports, the young singer is plotting to penetrate into the South African industry thanks to Sony Music which is one of the worlds biggest music recording labels.
