Burna Boy, Naira Marley and others bag Soundcity MVP Award

Soundcity’s MVP Awards set the ball rolling for music enthusiasts in 2020, as the first music award show of the decade. Fans started voting for their favourite artists between the 4th & 11th of January , and on Saturday the winners were revealed at the award ceremony hosted in the Eko Convention Centre.

The lineup promised performances from Diamond Platnumz, Prince Kaybee, Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Rema and Stonebwoy, while Tiwa Savage and GoodGirl LA came out as the surprise acts. Though their performances were among the show’s highlights, the awards are what everyone came for.

Popular narrative tends to pit the three breakout artists from last year, Joeboy, Rema and Fireboy DML, against each other, but all three acts won awards for Best Pop Song, Best New MVP and Listeners Choice respectively at the Soundcity MVP Awards.

Fans were also excited to see Naira Marley win his first award since breaking out with “Japa” in 2018, and the often controversial rapper went home with the Viewers’ Choice award while Burna Boy went home with the most awards, bagging the Best African Artist of the year award, the Best Male MVP award and Song of The Year.
