Nigeria’s comedy star, Emanuella Samuel, also known as Emanuella, has won the Nickelodeon Kid Choice Awards 2021 in the ‘Favorite African Social Media Star’ category.
Emmanuella was nominated with Nigerian comedy group, Ikorodu Bois; South African Magician, Wian Van Den Berg; Ugandan Youth Dance Group, Ghetto Kids; Kenyan social media sensation, Elsa Majimbo; and South African media personality, Bonang Matheba.
While appreciating her fans via an Instagram post, she wrote: “Congratulations to me as I won the Favourite African Social Media Star category at the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2021. I am so happy to be a winner, thank you! To all my fans out there, I say thank you. To all those who voted for me, I love you so much, this win would not have been possible without you.”
The Awards ceremony was hosted by Kenan Thompson (Kenan, Saturday Night Live) and it featured mind blowing performances by the talented Canadian musician, Justin Bieber. He mounted the stage and sang hit songs “Intentions” with Quavo, “Anyone” and “Hold On.” Also, he led the pack with five nominations and won two awards.
Emanuella was just five years old when she took part in a comedy skit that shot her to stardom and won her four international awards.
In the skit titled, “My Real Face,” she deformed her face to avoid the wrath of the headmistress and her daughter.
The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is also known as the KCAs or Kids’ Choice and it is an annual American children’s awards ceremony show produced by Nickelodeon.
