This was revealed after a pre-recorded snippets leaked online this morning with ‘Kwaku The Traveler’ on stage in the US to pick up the award.
Blacko was nominated in the same category last year, but he lost out to Benjamin Epps from France.

Few weeks ago, Blacko won the ‘West African Artiste of The Year’ category’ in the USA for his significant contribution to the continent’s music scene during the year under review.
These successes are a testament to his rapid growth in a short career span.
