Fresh off taking home six statuettes at last month’s South African Hip-Hop Awards, Cassper Nyovest added more silverware to his trophy cabinet at Nigeria’s Soundcity MVP Awards last night.

Apart from rocking the stage, Nyovest walked off with the Best Hip-Hop award at the ceremony held in Lagos last night. For the away win, Cassper Nyovest beat out fellow countrymen Kwesta, AKA and Nasty C as well as Nigerians M.I Abaga, Falz and Olamide and Ghanaian Sarkordie.

But Cassper wasn’t the only South African who won at the Soundcity MVP Awards, Gqom masters Distruction Boyz bagged one for Best Duo or Group. However, the biggest winner of the night was Nigerian-based global superstar Davido.

Awards seemed to fall on dude as he took home three trophies for his hit If in the categories African Artiste of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year.
