On the 12th of January, Nigerians were left in shock after Tanzania's Diamond Platinumz was announced as the Soundcity MVP Artiste of The Year in the male category.

Many wondered how a combination of hit makers like Wizkid, Davido, Sarkodie, Olamide and 2Face Idibia could lose out to Diamond Platinumz.

If you subtract the collaborations he has with some Nigerian artistes, how many “hits” does the man really have?

It looked like the worst scam of 2017, but the bitter pill was prepared by the fans of these musicians who did not vote.

According to the vote breakdown released by the organizers of the award, Diamond Platinumz had the highest percentage of votes with 29%. This was followed by Wizkid with 20%, Sarkodie with 19% and Davido with 18%.

Shatta Wale had 6%, Olamide 5%, while Runtown and 2Face Idibia took the rear with 2% each.

This shows how the most populated black country in the world could not support its own, and if this is how the vote ended then there is no need to be surprised or disappointed.

Allow Diamond Platinumz and his fans enjoy there work, next year, Nigerians will definitely give themselves brain.
