In 1991, Daniel Wilson won his first African Music Award for his groundbreaking album “Mr Ragamuffin” — the ace producer Chris Okoro produced this stunning hit-laden album. He went on to win numerous other awards for the songs “Abortion” and “Give Us A Chance” all in the same album, his biggest gratification as he said was the Platinum Disc given to him by his record Company EMI, it is still hanging in his living room till this day.
Daniel Wilson made history in April 1992 when he won 5 awards at the prestigious Fame Music Awards for the album “Mister Ragamuffin”, making him not only the first person but the only musician to win such a number of awards in any single award ceremony as at then, but also the first artist to win the prizes for Best Male Vocalist, Artiste Of The Year and Album Of The Year Awards with one album. The FMA board called the album “a futuristic collection of original song that portrays the best of modern African-Caribbean Traditions.”
One of the top-selling artists of all time in Nigeria, Daniel has received several special honours in past years from all over Africa. In November 1999, he was honoured for his efforts with the Entertainer of the Decade Award at the West African Music Awards Ceremony that took place in Ghana.
