You can say it’s truly deserved, as Ghana’s Fuse ODG beat out 4 nigerians (Tiwa Savage, WizKid, Ice Prince & Seun Kuti) to claim the best african act award at the just concluded MOBO awards 2013.
It’s been a great year for him with the release of his infectious tunes, Azonto & Antenna that literally took over african music and made a huge impact on the global stage as well.
Also nominated in that category were Spoek Mathambo, Mafikizolo and Liquid Deep from South Africa, and Bombino from Niger.
