“I want to thank God for the gift of music and being able to share it with the world, to heal souls, and help people go through whatever they are going through in life. Thank you to my fans around the world for believing in me. I [also] want to thank my family and my children,” he said upon collection of his award with his son, Esona, at his side.

His fellow nominees were Illenium, Major Lazer, Marshmello, Sylvan Esso and Ten City.

South Africa was also represented by comedian Trevor Noah, who hosted the awards.
