Popular YouTube comedy star, Emanuella Samuel, has won Nickelodeon’s Kid Choice Awards 2021 in the ‘Favorite African Social Media Star’ category.

Emanuella won the voting-based award but was in good company with fellow nominees in the same category being, Ikorodu Bois, Magician Wian Van Den Berg from South Africa, Uganda’s Ghetto Kids, Kenya’s social media sensation Elsa Majimbo, and South Africa’s Bonang Matheba.

Emanuella was first nominated for the Kids Choice Awards in 2018 alongside Davido but they lost to Ugandan singer Eddy Kenzo.

The Ikorodu Bois received tons of praise for their creativity of using everyday stuff to craftily make their videos and were invited to the world premiere of Netflix action flick ‘Extraction 2′ after they remade the first trailer.

The Ikorodu Bois, made up of three brothers (Babatunde Sanni, 23, Muiz Sanni,16, Malik Sanni, 10; and their cousin, Fawas Aina, 13), were featured on Steve Harvey’s TV show which shined even more of a spotlight on them. They have remade many music videos and movie trailers.
