Nigerian entertainers – Emmanuella and Davido – failed to win the favourite African star category of the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. They were defeated by Eddy Kenzo, an Ugandan musician who eventually won the award.

Real name, Edrisa Musuuza, Kenzo is best known for his 2014 song ‘Sitya Loss’. In 2017, he released ‘Sembera Eno’ and ‘Jubilation’, two songs which were big hits in Uganda.

The award ceremony took place in Inglewood, California, US, on Sunday. The winner was determined by voter preferences and other considerations.
