The second edition of the Soundcity MVP awards held last night, and Nigerians already think ‘ojoro’ or to loosely put it, corruption, is involved.
This happened because Tanzanian pop star Diamond Platnumz won the ‘Best Male MVP’ category and Nigerians were perplexed- to say the least.
Understandable. We had the continent jamming to dope songs from Davido, Runtown, Wizkid and the likes so people are like “Diamond what?” “How?” “From where?” “Is it jazz or mistake?”
Here are some other reactions by Nigerians on social media:
How Diamond Platnumz beat Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, to win the BEST MALE MVP should be the greatest fraud ever ?

Prayer points soon be like;
1. God of Diamond Platnumz give me that miracle that will sound like a lie.
2. Lord I refuse to become irrelevant like Iyanya.
3. Father make me a blessing to my generation like 2face.

Diamond Platnumz is HUGE, but Davido still should have won it. Man was dropping hits anyhow.
