2FACE BECOMES FIRST NIGERIAN TO WIN A MOBO!

Nigeria’s pop icon 2face Idibia added another feather to his already crowded cap when he was announced as the best african act at the 12th edition of the MOBO awards which held at the 02 Arena, Greenwich, London on Wednesday September 19.

And the singer broke another record, when his award fell and broke into pieces, just as he was about making hi acceptance speech.

2face, who clocked 32 a day before, and was treated to a surprise bash by his friends, was speechless and obviously embarrassed, but he had co-nominee D’Banj and hypes man Natz by his side.

the singer is the first Nigerian to ever win at the Music of black origin awards. he is also the first and only Nigerian to have ever won an MTV awards. he achieved the feat when he was crowned best African Act at the MTV EMA in 2005.

he had earlier been nominated for the MOBOs in 2005, but he lost to Youssou N’doir.

the singer is still in London, where he’s honouring performance engagements. he is expected to return home in the first week of october.
