It would seem the Nigerian nominees in the Best African Act category at The 2014 MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) Awards knew they weren’t going to take home the prize because none of them attended last night’s (October 22) ceremony which went down at the SSE Arena in London.

The award for Best African Act went to Azonto crooner Fuse ODG from Ghana who beat out stiff competition from Nigerian nominees such as; Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Yemi Alade, Davido and Dr Sid!

Fuse also took home the award last year.

At last night’s BET Awards red carpet in L.A.Wizkid forgot where he was for a few moments as he was caught on camera completely enthralled by the sight of reality star Draya Michele’s body…her a$$ to be exact!

23 year old Wizkid was being interviewed on the red carpet alongside Wale and another pal, when Draya who appears on the reality show – Basketball Wives L.A. walked in front of them in a super tight black dress that did nothing to hide her curves, causing Wizzy and his friends to stare lustfully at her behind!

Somebody pass Wizzy an ice cold drink he looks like he needs it!

Obviously loving the attention her butt was getting, Draya shared the thirsty pic on instagram! Wizkid also shared the picture with the caption, “I just had to do it. Lol”

At least all they did was look…men will be men! LOL

Speaking of Wizzy he was looking mad fresh at the BET’s rocking a YSL jacket, biker jeans, white Maison Martin Margela sneakers and a white t-shirt as he walked the red carpet with Nigerian/American rapper Wale. Check out the pics after the jump.

Naija stand upppppppp!

Davido won the Best International Act (African) at last night’s 2014 BET Awards, which took place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. 21 year old Davido beat out Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Sarkodie (Ghana), Mafikozolo (South Africa), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania) and Toofan (Togo).

Davido immediately took to twitter to celebrate his win, writing ” Thanks to all my fans!! WE WON”

As expected Davido was not given his award on the live show which aired to the American audience. He collected his award way before the show aired, his acceptance speech was pre-recorded before the show went live and will only be aired to the UK and African audience when the awards are shown here later this week.

This is exactly what happened when Ice Prince collected his award last year. [READ HERE IF YOU MISSED IT]

A video has just emerged which shows reality TV star Khloe Kardashian all loved up and dancing with her new man French Montana who she escorted to the MTV Africa Music Awards which went down in Durban, South Africa on Saturday June 7. The video was posted by Khloe’s makeup artist Rob Scheppy before he deleted it.

In the video you can see Khloe all dressed up in her gold Lanvin dress, as she danced and kissed her man. By the way Khloe is still “officially married” to Lamar Odom, her divorce has not been finalized.

French Montana also seems to have some divorce and baby mama drama of his own. The rapper is in the process of divorcing his wife of seven years Deen Kharbouch. Since his relationship with Khloe went public his wife has been talking to the media saying she helped the rapper with his career, but he abandoned her and their only child as soon as his rap career took off.
