And the winner is Wizkid!

He beat strong competition to win BET’s International Act – Africa Award.

He was up against Davido, Mr Eazi, Tekno, Stonebwoy, Nasty C, Babes Wodumo and AKA.

Wizkid's victory was announced at a special ceremony held in Los Angeles, California.

This is the second time the singer has won in this category, after going home with the award along with Sarkodie in 2012.

According to reports, Nasty C was reportedly announced the winner of the award by accident last week but BET made sure to apologize for what they referred to as a "glitch".

However, Wizkid was unavailable to collect his award.
