Honestly, I think they deserve it.
The amazing Kenyan afro-pop band, Sauti Sol succeeded in edging out Nigerian pop princess, Tiwa Savage out of the MTV EMA Best African Act wild card nominations section.
Organisers of the premium awards ceremony threw the last slot in the Best African Act category open for votes and after the collation of all votes, Sauti Sol from Kenya emerged winners, thus joining Davido, Goldfish, Diamond and Toofan in the hotly contested category for African music stars.
