MTV EMA after reverting the award to Ali Kiba released an apology statement that reads:
Both Wizkid and Alikiba are great artistes and deserving winners at the MTV EMAs and we congratulate them wholeheartedly on their achievements. We apologise for any confusion but we are pleased to recognise the achievements of both these artists on this global platform.’
6 ‘Worldwide Act’ winners, including Wizkid, were selected by an international committee of MTV music executives to recognise current artists who are rising to have a wider geographic appeal beyond their local regions.
Ali Kiba who also took to instagram to express his heartfelt disappointment at the wind of things got rebuffed by Wizkid.
Ali Kiba had posted earlier on his Instagram:
I am not happy with what has been going on, on social media . I have a great appreciation for @wizkidayo as a fellow artist and as a fan . I am very disappointed and saddened by the insults and attacks directed at him, and I want to be very clear that I condemn this behaviour and I believe none of my true fans are part of this irrational silliness and stupidity as they know I have always had love for @wizkidayo
Drown out the noise from the haters bro, congratulations on your very successful year. Much love from my real fans and from Tanzania ?? Pamoja #KingKiba
Wizkid after deleting all award posts from his Instagram replied on a final note
