Our favorite young girl, Emanuella is really going places! The 6-year-old is now one of many Nigerians giving us serious international exposure, and we’re so proud.

She just won herself the 2016 ‘Princess of Comedy’ and ‘Best New Comedienne’ award at the Afro Australia Movie and Music Awards (AAMMA).

The award held in Sydney, and was organised by Daniel Okoduwa, a Nigerian based in Australia. His aim is to recognize African talent from home and in the diaspora.

Emanuella is now the youngest ever to receive both awards. Her uncle, Mark Angel also won an AAAMA award for Leadership and Mentorship.

Well done girl! For those who are not familiar with this Youtube sensation, let’s sharply drop one of our favorite Emanuella clips for you. Enjoy!!!
